Campaigning During A Crisis

Coronavirus has impacted every aspect of our lives and the ways we traditionally campaign aren’t always available to us now. But two things remain true:

  1. Election day is in November.
  2. Campaigns have limited time, money, and resources.

That’s why NDTC rapidly shifted our training formats, curriculum, and strategy to help candidates, staffers, and local leaders like you adapt to the current crisis with the digital strategies, tools, and focused training you need to win.

Resources For Your Campaign

Below you’ll find a comprehensive list of resources to help your campaign every step of the way.

Training and Managing Volunteers Virtually

Social distancing doesn’t mean you go it alone. You need excited, motivated, and well-trained volunteers now more than ever. But not being able to meet with them frequently in-person means you need to change how you recruit, train, and communicate with your volunteers.

What Our Trainees Have to Say

Our trainees are the future of Democratic politics. Together we will change our communities and our country for the better.

I spent today’s lunch break in the @TrainDems Virtual Facilitation Training hosted by Allie and Rachel. It was one of the best webinars I’ve ever attended. I hope that all #Democrats attend every training you have capacity for. We need you.
