The Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated wants the GOP to go back to school.
In an effort to get a presence on high school and college campuses, the group will hold a meeting on the importance of reaching students in order to counter what it sees as "the overwhelming liberal bias" among teachers.
The guest speaker at the meeting, which is Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m. at the Farmers and Merchants Bank on Seal Beach Boulevard in Seal Beach, will be Jason Aula, who says a Republican presence could introduce students to alternatives often taught by their Democratic/union teachers.
"I will touch on how we can build the party on the local level," said Aula, political director for the Long Beach Young Republicans. "I believe recruiting young members to your club starts with having a presence on college campuses in the region."
Margene Walz, club president, said "the party needs to become an equal influence on high school and college campuses. It won’t be easy, since so many teachers are Democrats. Yet, once students learn about the Republican Party’s position on issues, I am confident they will want to be part of the conservative solution to our nation’s challenges.”
The club's meetings are open "to women and men who want to work with like-minded individuals to improve the political landscape." The Jan. 19 meeting will include time for networking and socializing.
