Training Agenda

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. Click here for the draft agenda.
