Virginia CopBlock Announces Liberty Empowerment Project

The Liberty Empowerment Project begins community outreach August 6th.

Richmond, VA – Virginia CopBlock activists, Nathan Cox and Meg McLain, announced the inauguration of the Liberty Empowerment Project for Monday, the 6th of August. The Liberty Empowerment Project is a grass-roots outreach program dedicated to educating people about the principles of individual rights. Project organizers want to empower people to protect and preserve their liberty.

Virginia CopBlock founder, Nathan Cox, intends for the Liberty Empowerment Project to serve as a vehicle for communicating about issues relating to liberty, non-aggression, victimless crime, police accountability, as well as issues relating to the issues of juror rights and the rights of indicted individuals. Cox and McLain envision their project as a peaceful solution to both the rising cases of police misconduct and civil liberties violations nationwide, as well as a means to de-escalate the aggressive violence affecting many of the inner-city and rural parts of the metropolitan Richmond area. The Liberty Empowerment Project focuses on the dissemination of a series of informative pamphlets designed to present the principles of freedom in a concise, easily accessible format.

About the Liberty Empowerment Project:

The Liberty Empowerment Project is an alternative to more traditional forms of activism involving electoral politics. Project graphic designer and co-organizer, Meg McLain, contrasts their project with the great deal of time and money spent on political campaigns. McLain describes the Liberty Empowerment Project as an affordable opportunity for liberty activists to have a direct and immediate impact on the freedom of individuals in the Richmond area.

The Liberty Empowerment Project is an entirely grassroots project presented by Virginia CopBlock; created by activists Nathan Cox and Meg McLain of Mechanicsville. Virginia CopBlock is supported by subscriber donations and advertisements contained within the pamphlets. The Liberty Empowerment Project is not associated with any political party or candidate.
