Thank you for your interest in serving the people in your area as an Area Assistant (a.k.a. "AA"), Field Assistant (a.k.a. "FA"), or State Assistant (a.k.a. "SA") within the People's Rights network. These trusted, key roles facilitates communication and coordination with your neighbors in defense of their rights. The role of Area Assistant, specifically, truly is the backbone of the entire effort, and one to which others will look to for leadership in your local area. Keep reading for additional information on these important roles.
But first... a couple of encouraging quotes, just to get you pumped. ;-)
God has given to men all that is necessary for them to accomplish their destinies. He has provided a social form as well as a human form. And these social organs of persons are so constituted that they will develop themselves harmoniously in the clean air of liberty. Away, then, with quacks and organizers! ... Away with their artificial systems! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by taxation, and their pious moralizations!
And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works."
Frédéric Bastiat, The Law, 1850
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated."
Thomas Paine, The American Crisis - No. 1, 1776
If you haven't already, please watch this short video (2m 48s) about the role of Area Assistant...
As you may have noticed the first time you logged in (unless there currently aren't any in your selected area), being an Area Assistant means that your contact details (name, email and mobile number) is made available (only) to other users of People's Rights within your area. AAs serve as a point of contact for other folks that live nearby.
Unlike other organizations and efforts, the People's Rights network does not function with a top-down leadership hierarchy or structure. Each Area Assistant - with occasional help offered by State Assistants (where available) - is responsible for helping those in their local area in organizing and defending individual rights. You know your local area better than someone from a different state, and how best you might help your neighbors in securing their liberties.
Area Assistants should typically seek to be informed on local issues, efforts and threats that others may need to be aware of to ensure their rights are not being infringed upon. As well, AAs should be prepared to receive calls for help in defending the rights of their neighbor... and be ready and available to activate (notify) others within the area (using the tools provided within the People's Rights portal, or otherwise) to come to their aid.
Linked below are some very important articles you need to read, study and understand to know specifically how you can assist the people in the Area.
NOTE: This communication network has already been proven successful in several instances as an effective tool in the defense of individual rights. Take courage knowing that it does and will work for you and your neighbors!
If your state has not yet been organized, or you are currently serving in the role of State Assistant but are unsure of your responsibilities, please watch this short 3 minute video about the role of State Assistant...
A Field Assistant in the People's Rights network is someone that is focused (or has agree to focus) on a specific subject or topic. Or, they may already be an expert in a certain field of interest. An FA should be willing and able to serve as a resource for others in their area. Unlike Area and State Assistants, however, FAs do not have access the contact details of local people, but can see State, Area and other Field Assistant contact details, and collaborate with them.
Field Assistants also have the ability to publish content in the People's Rights Newsroom. AAs can assign FAs, but only for their local area. SAs can also assign FAs to one or more areas, as needed. Field Assistant contact details are currently displayed to users of People's Rights in the My Area section after logging in.
As an Area or State Assistant within the People's Rights network, you'll be provided with various communication tools to help you perform your responsibilities effectively. Through volunteer efforts, these communication tools are constantly being improved (as time allows), but will presently allow you to keep in contact with other users of People's Rights in your local area... and even reach out to other Assistants in neighboring areas, as needed.
Please watch the video tutorial (34m 59s) below about the different features currently available within the People's Rights portal to Area and State Assistants.
If you experience difficulty using these tools (or have challenges using your tech devices, etc) please first reach out to other AAs and/or SAs (where available) for help. If they are unable to resolve the issue, you are welcome to contact , and a developer will be in touch, where possible. Please note, however, that due to the scope of this effort and the sheer number of people involved, there may be a delay in response.
