Christian Coalition Sponsors "Activist Schools"

Amid debt and racial discrimination lawsuits, the Christian Coalition launches a new program that will teach "grassroots organizing skills to conservative Americans," according to PR Week. Beginning next month in Oregon, the schools will be held in 24 "key states" and will train "pro-life" and "pro-family" activists how to elect conservatives within their local communities as well as how to influence state and federal politics. PR Week reports the Christian Coalition, operating with a $2-million debt, was sued in February by 10 African-American employees who were not allowed to use the office front door and kitchen and by a fired Caucasian employee who refused to spy on African-American employees.
