Trainings

Action Summits

Action Summits are interactive workshops that bring together hundreds of local activists, campaign staff and candidates for an intensive campaign training - followed by immediate strategic action to win on timely political priorities. A powerhouse team of experienced campaign professionals lead sessions in voter contact, fundraising, communications, online organizing and much more to empower progressive activists with the skills to win each November and beyond.

Right now, DFA is researching, planning and evaluating where our 2016 trainings will happen -- Arizona, Washington, Nevada, Iowa, North Carolina, Florida and Texas to name a few -- so please check back for details soon. If you'd like to request a training, submit your ideas here. (Please note that submitting a request for a training does not equal a guaranteed commitment from DFA.)

Night School

Night School is our online campaign skills instruction, where some of the savviest campaigners in the movement lead you through virtual trainings on field strategy, volunteer recruitment, coalition-building and powermapping, paid/earned media and messaging, finance planning, grassroots fundraising, and more. Check back here for updates on the calendar; in the meantime, you can access archived Night School trainings here.
