Apply for a Women Run Campaigns training

Learn how to be an electoral campaign manager with the women of the Working Families Party and Trans United Fund!

We are hosting two day long trainings where you’ll learn the tools and systems you need to effectively run a campaign. Whether you’re a super-volunteer, a field organizer, a resistance activist, or a first-time campaign manager, you are welcome -- we’re looking for women from various backgrounds and electoral experiences, from zilch to 100. All that matters is that you want to learn how to run a campaign.

2019 Training Calendar

  • June 22-23, 2019 in Hartford, CT
  • August 24-25, 2019 in Clarksburg, WV

Fill out this form to attend one of the upcoming trainings. A member of the Women Run Campaigns crew will review your information and let you know if you’re accepted two weeks before the training. We have limited space and resources right now, so we won’t be able to accept every participant, but we hope to provide space to as many applicants as possible.

By the way, when we say women…
This training is available for all those who identify as a woman as well as other gender minorities, including trans-feminine, gender nonconforming, and non-binary people. We recognize there are lots of folks who are underrepresented in campaigns and our goal is to shake up the patriarchy in more ways than one. We know that our campaigns will only represent our full brilliance when the full spectrum of our communities are running them. 

Oh and did we mention it’s free?
We will provide coffee, snacks, trainers, and space. If we are able to, we will also provide lunch. Every participant is responsible for their own travel and housing, if you need it. We will have limited funding and supporter housing for those who need assistance, so if that’s a concern, please let us know and we will work with you to find a solution.

What are ya waiting for? Fill out the form, save the date, and tell all your friends. If you don’t see a training that works for you and you want to help put one together, shoot Amanda Johnson an email at ajohnson@workingfamilies.org with the subject line: "Women Run Campaigns Training."

This should be your chosen name as you would like to be called.
