Running for local and state office in deep red territory is one of the most powerful things you can do to change your state and the nation. Forget everything you thought you knew and come learn just how powerful you can be—and how to implement a strong state or local campaign that yields quantifiable progress.
This training is best suited for activists and operatives living in difficult states or districts. Attendees may be considering a run for office or may be interested in supporting those who do, either as staff or in a volunteer capacity. No previous political experience is necessary.
