Dana Miller here from Indivisible Denver. We are thrilled to partner with America Votes in presenting a series of online trainings designed to equip us with the tools we need to be badass activists! March will be focused on organizing, April on campaigns and elections and May on digital organizing. Trainers include folks from Conservation Colorado, New Era Colorado, AFLCIO, Denver Area Labor Federation, Mi Familia Vota and many more. Here are some details and PLEASE PASS THIS INFO FAR AND WIDE!

Training Goal:

Equip “the Resistance” with key tools and skills to be able to get involved in 2018 elections and make an impact. America Votes partners will “own” a session of this training series so that experts in organizing, digital campaigns, electoral strategy, media engagement and power-building can, as the experts in their field, bring their skill-sets to the forefront to train new leaders. We will kick things off in March with the organizing track, below is a timeline on trainings for April and May, RSVP’s will be sent separately from the March RSVP.
