When we start raising serious money, I'd like to hire a "Chief Media Coordinator" for the campaign who could not just do the normal work associated with that position, but also coordinate a team of volunteers who would be willing to help score interviews and media coverage for the campaign. But until then ... anyone want to volunteer? Who is interested in helping? Anyone got any ideas to share about this?

Well Adam and Ms. Macy,

I think you are doing pretty good handling your media and PR but I understand that there will come a time that you will need people that will help you and you have to trust these people. I know that we need to get more publicity for this forum. The numbers are not what they could be. I recommend you do a video that we can use to promote this page. I would suggest a Facebook page maybe Freedom2020. I know a few internet radio shows that would love an interview with you. Let me know and I will help set that up. No, that doesn't mean I am volunteering for this position.

Stradog - "handling your media and PR" right now is just me responding to emails and scheduling interviews. I'd like to be able to do a lot more and more high-profile interviews, but we need help with the outreach! It's very easy and anyone can help significantly in just seconds. Following someone on Twitter you'd like to see interview me? Send them a tweet with my handle, @adamkokesh. Local newspaper? Send and email and follow up with a phone call. TV? Same thing! Radio? Call in and do it live! Speaking of which ...

LOCAL MEDIA PROMOTION FOR THE TOUR!
While we're traveling the country, most days, we'll have some time to do local radio interviews the day of the event in each city. We have to be at the venue at 5 every day, but anything before that is an option, including pre-taping. This kind of coverage is really good for bringing people out to events, so if there's a station in your city where were having an event, please reach out! It's not too early to schedule something in advance. Please just direct them to email me at [email protected] dot com and we'll set it up.
Just read the book.

Greetings, Adam! I'm Amanda Parsons. I saw your request for a media coordinator. I would like to step up and volunteer for the position. I have a bachelor's degree in mass communications; a focus in radio broadcasting, journalism, and public relations. I've had my own internet radio shows, and have been a member of other shows and podcasts. I also have prior experience doing radio commercials for a major market Atlanta radio station. Most recently I helped with various responsibilities as a member of the campaign for Darryl W. Perry for President, including various PR responsibilities. I would love to be a member of your team.

Adam, Amanda and Rick,

I would be honored to contribute to this cause.  I would like to specifically offer graphic design work creating posters and banners for events that can be used for marketing and media outreach.  Please feel free to reach out to me at:

[email protected]

I'm in Austin TX, can't wait to see you at Brave New Books again.  Let me know what I can do to help with the campaign.  I imagine it was a sobering experience coming out of the Libertarian convention this year knowing that the party is leaning more centrist.  Limited government instead of dissilusion, I'm sure by 2020 people will be seeing things in quite a different light though.

Frank Somma

I will be submitting this article (which includes todays Press Release) to multiple news sources, lets hope some bite:



When Adam Kokesh began an IndieGoGo campaign at the end of 2014 there were still a lot of questions to be answered.  What was his book FREEDOM! about, when were the 30,000 copies Adam ordered going to arrive and was the American Campfire Freedom Tour actually going to occur?

The fundraiser met its goal on the very last day, it was a race to the finish line the entire way and after the goal was met Adam went dark for a couple of weeks.  There were no updates on the tour or when those of us who contributed could expect our copies of the book.

The wait didn’t last long though, come April the tour began and lasted well in to the Fall of 2015.  Adam and his fiancé Macey brought their 19 foot trailer home around the country to any like minded establishment that would have them. 

Here we are, a little more than a year later and not only was the American Campfire Freedom Tour a great success, but on top of that the message of FREEDOM! has spread so far and wide that Adam has moved on to his second tour, FOR THE LOVE OF FREEDOM!

If you missed the first time FREEDOM! was brought on the road this is your chance to meet the author whose message is one of personal freedom and responsibility.  Whose personal journey is unparalleled in modern history. 

From soldier to war activist, television and online news personality, political prisoner, author, homesteader and Libertarian.  Adam Kokesh is a Political Revolution and a Big Tent Party all by himself. 

This tour brings the message of FREEDOM! back on the road, it will also serve as an exploratory trip to measure the support for a potential Kokesh 2020 Presidential bid.  A Presidential Campaign that promises to bring about an orderly, peaceful dissolution of the US Government.

–PRESS RELEASE–
For Immediate Release: June 6, 2016
CONTACT: Amanda Parsons
Phone: (602) 551-6789
Email: [email protected]

Many individuals believe that the message of freedom is popular, and Adam Kokesh is no exception.

Beginning in August, Kokesh will be kicking off his FOR THE LOVE OF FREEDOM! National Tour. The tour will go until the end of October. It will include 60 events across the continental United States. He will be distributing free copies of his book FREEDOM! at every event, which is currently in its fourth printing, with two million downloads.

“I started writing FREEDOM! because I wanted the ultimate tool to share the message as easily, efficiently, and joyously as possible,” explained Kokesh.

The FREEDOM! tour will help Kokesh gauge national interest for his Presidential run in 2020. He hopes to confirm the support of current fans, while gaining the support of new ones.

“If support continues to build, next summer I will announce that I am running for President on the platform of peacefully abolishing the entire federal government in an orderly manner and returning all of its land and stolen property directly to the people,” said Kokesh.

All events on the tour are free and open to the public. The help support the tour financially, Kokesh will be will be holding off-the-record meet and greets before each event. To purchase meet-and-greet tickets, make monetary donations or become a volunteer, please visit: thefreedomline.com.

Thanks for the warm welcome.  I saw the Texas page and already submitted myself for Travis County representative for the campaign.  I would love to join the Facebook page, however I deleted my Facebook account five years ago and don't ever plan on looking back.  I want to contribute as much as I can and hope that the forums become an active way to do so.
