Virtual Candidate & Campaign Training – February 2021

Virtual Candidate & Campaign Training – February 2021

The February training has reached full capacity; applications will no longer be accepted unless you have discussed an alternative timeline with a member of the Victory Institute team.

Victory Institute is bringing its signature Candidate & Campaign Training ONLINE, February 18-20, 2021 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 and the Rainbow Tsunami in 2020, we’re thrilled to see what 2021 brings!

Understanding how to develop a winning strategy that uses campaign tools effectively is what leads a campaign to victory. Our Virtual 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, Minneapolis Councilmember Andrea Jenkins, and Virginia State Delegate Danica Roem. Don’t miss out on our first Candidate & Campaign Training of the year!
