June Activist Challenge
Our monthly Activist Challenge is designed to build infrastructure for Democratic campaigns and organizations through grassroots engagement. Are you ready to accept the challenge, and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot?!

This month, we are challenging our #BPItraining family to kickstart summer infrastructure building by organizing around big events! 

  • The season of summer barbecues, block parties, and community engagement is upon us! 
  • Use local events in your community to uplift the work of Democrats and recruit the volunteer coalition that will set us up for success in 2022 and beyond!
  • After reviewing the spotlight training video highlighted below, identify at least one new idea to implement within your local organization, and work with your fellow Democrats to make it happen. 
  • Once you’ve completed the challenge, take a selfie and create a post on social media that includes the following information:
    • Your state or territory 
    • A brief explanation of how you completed this month’s challenge
    • The hashtag “#BPItraining” 
    • And don’t forget to tag “@TheDemocrats
