AFT & NDTC Partnership
"AFT members together, make a difference in the lives of others. Every day, we care, we fight and we show up for our families; for the patients, children and citizens we serve; for our communities; and for the freedoms we cherish as Americans. The November elections are a moment to reject the politics of division and an opportunity to level the playing field. Candidates throughout the country in red, blue and purple states, including more than 300 of our members running for office, are embracing our values and standing with us." - Randi Weingarten, President AFT
Teaching Democrats How to Win
GET TRAINED ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
Our trainings are interactive and available online 24/7. Courses include samples and do-it-yourself templates that candidates can use immediately in their own campaigns. Take the courses most relevant to your campaign, and take them as many times as you need.
FREE CAMPAIGN TRAINING FOR EVERY DEMOCRAT
NDTC trainings are available to any Democrat or Progressive looking to make a change in their community. No litmus test. No cost.
LOCAL & DOWN BALLOT CANDIDATES MATTER
Races like City Council, School Board, Judge, and other local offices matter. These offices directly affect the lives of every American, yet are often overlooked. We teach candidates how to get the support they need to win.
CAMPAIGN PLANS FOCUSED ON MEETING GOALS
Every community and campaign is unique, but the strategy and tactics it takes to win are not. Our trainings teach candidates how to write and execute a campaign plan focused on the only goal that matters: winning.
