BELLEVUE, WA – Veteran grassroots gun rights organizer Glen Caroline has joined the staffs at the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, where he will serve as Director of External Affairs.

With 29 years of front line experience in the Second Amendment movement, Caroline will spearhead grassroots and training programs for both organizations, according to SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. Glen comes to the SAF/CCRKBA after serving for years as managing director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action Grassroots Programs and Campaign Field Operations division.

“I have known and worked with Glen for more than two decades,” said Gottlieb, who also serves as CCRKBA chairman. “He brings years of important experience in grassroots organizing and communications at an important moment in the Second Amendment movement. Grassroots engagement to protect our right to keep and bear arms is at a critical juncture.

“Glen’s solid commitment to the Second Amendment, and his depth of experience will help ensure that our members and gun rights activists are fully engaged to protect our rights and defend the cause of freedom,” Gottlieb added.

Moving into his new role, Caroline observed, “My entire professional life has been dedicated to the cause of the Second Amendment and the preservation of Americans’ liberties. I’m excited for the opportunity to continue my efforts to educate and empower America’s gun owners in this fight.”

“Initially, Glen’s work will consist of a series of web-based grassroots trainings in the coming weeks,” Gottlieb said. “He will also build our Second Amendment Family coalition and Second Amendment First Responder program.”
