Ready to work for a progressive candidate?

(From our friends at Progressive Change Campaign Committee)

Ready to work for a progressive candidate? 

You're invited to apply for our finance training in Philadelphia on May 24 and 25, which will teach the nuts and bolts of fundraising for progressive candidates -- how to research donors, plan fundraisers, manage a budget, and more. After the training, we'll help connect you with a progressive campaign where you can put your skills to work. 

The training is free, and we even provide breakfast and lunch on both days to keep the energy up!

Every year, thousands of great progressives run for office. But a lot of times, they don't have enough money to get their message out. You've probably seen it locally -- wonderful candidates who run for school board or state legislature, who simply couldn't raise enough money to compete.

This training teaches the fundamentals of campaign work using easy, step-by-step guided exercises. It's appropriate for everyone from volunteers on their first race to seasoned activists. Students, candidates, union members -- all are welcome.

Here is what past graduates said about the finance program:

"The P100 Training help me hone my campaign skills and learn new tactics to make me not only a better Field Director but a better all around campaigner.  If you want to make a career in politics this training is a shouldn't miss for anyone wanting to work in progressive campaigns".
-- Ben Young

"When I was considering a run for Congress, I spoke to the PCCC about my fear of fundraising. They suggested I take their Finance Training. So I spent the weekend honing my campaign finance skills with their talented trainers who gave me the confidence to pick up the phone!" 
-- Barbara McIlvaine Smith

After you apply and submit your resume, we'll follow up right away to interview qualified applicants. The deadline is Monday, May 5  -- click here to sign up.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.
-- Lacey Connelly, PCCC Training Director
