It’s your time to run! Join LGBTQ+ Victory Institute for a training to teach you what it takes to run a successful campaign while talking about the unique obstacles (and solutions) that LGBTQ+ people face. LGBTQ+ public officials are severely underrepresented in all levels of government across the U.S.
Our signature 4-day bootcamp-styled LGBTQ+ Candidate & Campaign Trainings provide a comprehensive, non-partisan simulation to understand campaign best practices for any present or future LGBTQ+ candidates, campaign staff, and community leaders. Trainees learn the necessary skills and strategies by engaging in tough, realistic campaign exercises and working with peers to develop a plan to run for office and win.
Thousands of LGBTQ+ candidates, elected officials, and leaders have learned how to build winning campaigns through our training programs, and we want you to join us next!
LGBTQ+ Victory Institute’s bootcamp-style campaign training in 2016 gave me the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to make the leap and run in 2017.
