    McLean County Republicans are pleased to bring to our area a special all-day workshop provided by the Leadership Institute on Saturday, September 14 from 9am to 5pm. Since 1979, Leadership Institute has trained more than 200,000 conservative activists, leaders, and students. The Institute's unique college campus network has grown to more than 1,700 conservative campus groups and newspapers.
    We are excited to bring one of their trainers, Nathan Fatal, to Bloomington to lead this workshop. Nathan is the Grassroots Program Coordinator at the Leadership Institute, where he has trained over 2500 activists, candidates, and elected officials. As LI's former Pacific Regional Field Coordinator, he oversaw campus programs in California and Hawaii. His activism led to pro-free speech policy changes at 11 colleges in California, including the largest community college district in the state and in the country.
