Candidate & Campaign Trainings

Del. Roem with quote about Candidate & Campaign Trainings


Our intensive, in-person four-day and virtual three-day Candidate & Campaign Trainings provide comprehensive, non-partisan best practices to present and future LGBTQ candidates, campaign staff, and community leaders. Trainees learn the necessary skills and strategies by engaging in tough, realistic campaign simulations and working with peers to develop a plan to run for office and win.

Thousands of openly LGBTQ candidates, campaign workers, and other leaders have learned how to build winning campaigns through this training, which takes place several times each year.
