Highlights | DNC Campaign Academy 2020
August 20, 2020
Missed a session from one of the other days of Campaign Academy 2020? No worries! We’ll repeat our most popular sessions from the previous days and go over campaign fundamentals, organizing, and digital.
Demystifying Campaigns. Ever wondered how campaigns are structured and managed? We’ll walk you through the fundamentals of campaigns, from who is involved to the different phases of a campaign.
Finding Volunteer Opportunities on Campaigns. There are many opportunities to get involved in the 2020 election both locally and nationally. In this session, we’ll help you identify how you can employ your unique skills, interests, and passions to volunteer on a campaign and where you can go to connect with local organizers and national campaigns.
Distributed Organizing Teams & Relational Tactics. 2020 will change the way that campaigns are able to interact with and reach voters and volunteers. In this session, we’ll learn how to structure and manage distributed organizing teams — teams of volunteers who are distributed around the country or district. We’ll also understand relational organizing tactics, and how to leverage personal relationships to expand our outreach.
Principles of Persuasion. Have you ever tried to change someone’s mind? What is it like to have a conversation with someone who has wildly different opinions than your own? In this training, we’ll understand the foundations of how to have persuasion conversations and how we might get started changing perspectives.
Digital Organizing. How do we mobilize people we know online to take action? Digital organizing explores how volunteers can turn a click or like into an action or a vote.
Peer-to-Peer Texting. Have you ever sent texts to a stranger for your candidate? In this training, we’ll deep dive into the thinking and strategy behind peer-to-peer texting campaigns. We’ll walk through best practices for texting so that you can show up on day one ready to use any platform on any campaign.
