Detroit, Michigan
Detroit, Michigan

LGBTQ+ Victory Institute is bringing its signature Candidate & Campaign Training to Detroit, October 12-15, 2023, as part of its efforts to train a diverse pipeline of LGBTQ+ leaders to run for office and win!

Understanding how to develop a winning strategy that uses campaign tools effectively is what leads a campaign to victory. Our four-day Candidate & Campaign Training provides comprehensive, non-partisan training to present and future LGBTQ+ candidates, campaign staff and community leaders. Participants will learn the necessary skills and strategies by engaging in tough, realistic campaign situations, and hearing from our campaign experts.

We’ve trained thousands of openly LGBTQ+ people on how to build winning campaigns — including former Houston Mayor Annise Parker and Virginia State Delegate Danica Roem.
