Hello Democrats,

The May 22, 2022 Train the Trainer (T3) registration deadline is just around the corner, and we need your help to make sure that more people than ever learn these vital skills so they can help elect Democrats up and down the ballot! 

As a reminder, T3 is a free six-week, twelve-part virtual training course covering several aspects of grassroots campaigning. This program seeks to expand the skills of progressive activists and volunteers by ensuring that comprehensive training is free and accessible for Democrats all over the country.

Our T3 sessions change from year to year, bringing you the new skills and tactics needed for modern campaigning, while still covering the tried and true basics. Even if you’ve joined us for past T3 programs, you’re sure to learn something new each time. 

Sign-up for our 2022 T3 program before Sunday, May 22, so you don’t miss out on this once-a-year opportunity, and check out our May Activist Challenge below to learn how you can help spread the word to your fellow Democratic volunteers!
