Hello Democrats,  

September is National Voter Registration Month and with less than 10 weeks until Election Day, there is no better time to make sure our communities are ready and able to fully participate in the fast approaching midterm elections! September 20th is National Voter Registration Day and we have you covered with an activist challenge and Victory Vault spotlight to help you celebrate the day! You’ll also find rural organizing training opportunities and youth organizing resources in this month’s BPI Newsletter.

September 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?!

 It’s National Voter Registration Month! For this month’s Activist Challenge, we are challenging our #BPIFamily to register your friends, family, and neighbors as election season continues to heat up! 

 Save the Date! September 20, 2022 is National Voter Registration Day! How are you celebrating? Check out some ideas for engagement below: 

  • Reach out to your State Party, local Democratic party unit, campaign teams, and more to see what voter registration initiatives you can support this month! Find your State Party here

BPI Spotlight Training

The Spotlight Training portion of the BPI Newsletter will highlight specific trainings that cover skills and concepts that are core to our work and ask you to revisit those trainings in our BPI Victory Vault. The trainings spotlighted in each month’s challenge will correlate to skill building that we believe is most relevant to the timeframe in which it is recommended, allowing participants to put their new knowledge to work right away. 

After reviewing these “spotlight” trainings, we will encourage you to share and implement what you have learned within your local Democratic organizations and groups.
