Traditional 2-day Campaign Academy ($70)
The Democracy for America Campaign Academy mission is to focus, network, and train grassroots activists in the skills and strategies to take back our country, manage successful campaigns or run for office themselves. Experienced campaign professionals lead sessions in voter contact, fundraising, communications, and online organizing to empower progressive activists with the skills necessary to win in November and beyond.

Sunday-Only Activist Track ($35)
We know that politics goes beyond electing the best candidates, it includes winning on issues that impact our communities. The Activist Track is for people who are looking to gain or improve skills needed to run effective issue campaigns. In addition to the traditional training sessions running on Sunday, Activist Track participants have issue-organizing specific session options. Click here for the draft agenda.
