Celebrating Black History Month with The Collective PAC

All month long, we want to elevate the work of some of our amazing partner organizations whose own work focuses on elevating Black voices in politics.

The Collective PAC’s overarching mission is simple: build Black political power. Their work takes a variety of forms, from on-the-ground voter mobilization and GOTV efforts to empowering Black candidates through endorsements. They also work to recruit Black candidates to elections around the country in support of closing the racial gap in political representation.

Maximize Your Field Strategy Through Precinct Prioritization
Tuesday, February 13 at 1pm ET

Precinct prioritization is a strategy that allocates resources effectively and targets specific areas where a campaign is likely to have the most impact.

You’ll need to look at demographics, historical election results, turnout rates, and other relevant factors to identify the most pivotal precincts. It may seem like a lot at first, but our trainer will give you strategies to navigate through this data and make it relevant for your campaign.

NDTC Expert Q&A: Black Voices for Grassroots Change
Thursday, February 15 at 1pm ET

This Black History Month, we’re challenging the one-size-fits-all strategy that too many campaigns fall prey to. Black voters and communities are disproportionately targeted by voter suppression and misinformation, and it’s on candidates, staff, and volunteers to organize with intention and equity in mind.

So this month’s NDTC Expert Q&A: Black Voices for Grassroots Change brings together organizing veterans to discuss their own experiences out in the field. Their backgrounds span elected local office to student civic engagement, so you are truly in for a lively, substantive discussion.

How to Connect with Voters Through Personal Stories
Thursday, February 22 at 1pm ET

The stories of your life experiences reflect your values and priorities, establish authentic connections with your community, and inspire others to action. Learn when and how to leverage well-crafted personal stories while campaigning.

Identify the building blocks of an effective personal story, get tips on polishing it, and also learn to use feedback to further refine your story.

Building a Candidate Support Plan
Friday, February 23 at 1pm ET

A candidate support plan is really just a detailed document that lists the way that your local Democratic organization can provide support to the candidates that are running for office. It shows the concrete ways that your local party or org can help them win. Most importantly, it’s a living document that might adjust over time.

This training will name the components of a campaign support plan and walk through its benefits.
