We convene, train, and support the next generation of candidates and campaign staff.

For far too long, progressives have underinvested in talent.

This has led to poor retention of campaign staff, dependency on consultants, burn out, and brain drain. Most importantly, it has cost us elections.

This challenge is most pronounced in down-ballot races. Democratic state legislative campaigns have long been under-professionalized and under resourced. The GOP, in contrast, has been patient, organized, and well-funded.

We are building the most robust and diverse talent pipeline the Democratic party has ever seen.

And it’s all completely free or low cost because if Democrats want to win, they must draw talent from all backgrounds and all corners of the country.
