Sierra Club Hosts Jeremy Dahl On ‘The Real Nature Of Politics’

Saturday, January 18, 2014

The Sierra Club will host Jeremy Dahl’s discussion “The Real Nature of Politics” on Monday, Jan. 27, at 7:00pm at Outdoor Chattanooga. His talk will include how to get into grassroots politics and capture your representative’s attention in order to get your concerns heard and needs met.

A sales professional living in Chattanooga, Mr. Dahl spent 2009-2011 traveling the country, working and volunteering as a political field representative and campaign consultant. He is a technology enthusiast, outdoorsman, and entrepreneur.

He believes the only way to make change is to expose the real nature of politics.

Mr. Dahl is interested in empowering the average citizen in the political process. He said, “I plan to talk about how to control the playing field that those on the direct path to power must dance upon, the difference between power and access, and more.”
