On a campaign, you talk to someone. And then the next person. And then the next person. Thousands and thousands of conversations are the molecules of a successful campaign. So don’t you want you and your volunteers to have the most effective conversations possible? Our exercise-based training will use best practices from labor and electoral organizing to break down the conversation, piece by piece—and turn our persuasive skills into art.
Before joining the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (BoldProgressives.org), Lacey worked on campaigns for ten years, from campaign management to fieldwork to finance reports. A self-described “training junkie,” she loves spending every day strengthening the progressive movement by making sure we all have the skills we need to win. Lacey received her B.A. in Communications, with a focus on Media & Politics, from Northwestern University. She’s very happy to work at an online organization that allows her to live in her home state of West Virginia, where she serves as the Vice President for the WV Young Dems.
