Next week’s NDTC National Bootcamp: Field Deep Dive will bring you a variety of sessions designed to take your field strategies to the next level. Starting at noon ET on Saturday, June 3, this comprehensive workshop will give your field tactics a boost.

So You Want to Run for Office (Pride Month Edition)

Thursday, June 1 at 1pm ET

In partnership with our friends at LGBTQ+ Victory Fund, we present our So You Want to Run for Office introductory training with a special focus on candidates who identity as LGBTQIA+. We welcome and encourage anyone who is even just considering running for office..

One of the best ways to combat right-wing attacks on the LGBTQIA+ community is ensuring that LGBTQIA+ voices are centered and prioritized. This work can begin with a candidacy for office, where you’ll talk to neighbors, elevate issues that affect you, and build coalitions of support. On the fence? Register and learn more in this one-hour overview of the entire process!

Running in a Red District

Monday, June 5 at 1pm ET

In June we’re pivoting to field strategy as the connective tissues between trainings. To kick off the month, we’re bringing you the ultimate session that will prepare you to turn out voters in red or conservative areas.

While running in these areas can be an uphill battle, using empathy and calls to action through relational organizing will be your best route.

Learn more about relational organizing and how to employ it in the field when you live in a predominantly red area.

[Later in June] NDTC Expert Q&A: NDTC Expert Q&A: Pride in Focus (Transgender & Nonbinary Campaign Experiences)

Thursday, June 15 at 1pm ET

It’s clear that the efforts from conservatives against the LGBTQIA+ community have been specifically targeted against transgender and nonbinary folks. So we’re partnering again with LGBTQ+ Victory Fund to host a frank, honest discussion about getting involved with politics as a transgender or nonbinary individual.

Join several panelists who are trans individuals and allies as they discuss the challenges and considerations they’re faced with in their own work, communities, and on the trail. Bring your questions and gear up for a thoughtful discussion with these amazing leaders. Use the button below to learn more about the panelists and topics covered.
