Training for Running for Office in Eastern Washington

Think!  Do you know any Democrats in Central or Eastern Washington who might be good candidates and officeholders at any level of government.  Progressive Majority is co-sponsoring a training for people who want to run for office in Central or Eastern Washington.  It's a great opportunity and has some of the best trainers from Progressive Majority, Emily's List and Wellstone Action putting it on.  The training, scheduled for April 1-2 in Yakima, covers:

  • Making the decision to run for political office (at any level: School Board, City Council, County Commission & beyond!)
  • Effectively mobilizing communities of color
  • Campaign Fundamentals: Fundraising, Voter Contact, Message Development, & Field Organizing

Progressive Majority, along with their co-sponsors (United Farm Workers, SEIU Local 775, the Washington State Democrats, the Washington State Hispanic/Latino Democratic Caucus, and Teamster Union Local 760) is working hard to contest elections in all parts of Washington State and build a bench of progressive Democrats in all parts of the state.

This event is free.  However you must REGISTER for this training by "ordering a ticket" either online at or by calling (206) 443-5566.
