Peninsula Swing Left Academy Training at the DVC

Start: July 21, 2018 8:30 AM

End: July 21, 2018 1:00 PM

UPDATE: Due to a pressing personal matter, this national training event will no longer feature Harvard lecturer and trainer Marshall Ganz. This livestream event will now be taught by a team of veteran organizers, including Ceci Hall (former lead on Bernie's distributed organizing team and distributed organizing director for the Woman's March) and Saskia Young (former CA Field Director for the Hillary Campaign and Director of the Swing Left Academy). The estimated completion time is now 1 PM (pacific time) rather than 2 PM. If you originally signed up based on earlier announcements, please be aware that the speakers and content of this July 21 event has changed.


Join us on Saturday July 21st starting at 8:30 AM pacific time and ending at 1:00 PM for a powerful livestream training session to build your skills as an activist to win elections.

This first-of-its-kind training will be joined by fellow volunteers around the country.  We'll review the core organizing skills that will help us win back the House.

Swing Left Academy: Live! is a new way to experience live, interactive trainings on the core organizing skills that win elections.  The training will be streamed live to living rooms and meeting rooms around the country—so everyone can come together at this event to watch, learn, and participate in a series of interactive exercises with fellow activists.
