You Should Run

Thinking about running for office? This training was designed to help you figure out where to begin. We cover what office best fits your lifestyle and personal passions, how to identify a winnable seat, and how to start preparing for a future run. Each workshop features an elected Democratic women guest speaker who shares her first-hand experience of what you can expect when running for office and serving your community.

Campaign 101

Decided to run for office? Join us to learn the nuts and bolts of running for office —  from creating your campaign budget, developing your message, field and targeting, paid communications, earned media, and the basics of fundraising.

Campaign Staff Academy

Looking to be a part of a winning campaign? This two-day training offers everything a campaign staffer needs to know about running a top-notch operation from developing a campaign budget and fundraising plan, to a communications plan and field plan. We then match top participants to our targeted races across Florida.

Finance Training

Winning campaigns require resources. This training consists of a deep dive into organizing your database, finding traditional Democratic donors in a candidate’s district, perfecting the solicitation, and best practices around organizing fundraising events and online fundraising.
