2020 Virtual Candidate & Campaign Training

2020 Virtual Candidate & Campaign Training

[UPDATE] Thank you for your interest. Due to limited capacity and high interest, we are no longer accepting applications for this training.

Victory Institute is bringing its signature Candidate & Campaign Training ONLINE from April 23-25, as part of our efforts to train a diverse pipeline of LGBTQ leaders to run for office and win! After the incredible Rainbow Wave we had in the 2018 midterm elections, we’re ready to create a Rainbow Tsunami in 2020!

Understanding how to develop a winning strategy that uses campaign tools effectively is what leads a campaign to victory. Our first-ever “Virtual Candidate & Campaign Training” will provide an overview of our usual in-person 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.
