We build the teams that power victories
Candidates are only as strong as their teams.
Republicans understand this reality, and for decades, they’ve invested time, resources, and energy into building a robust talent pipeline of campaign staff and movement leaders. Today they spend four times as much as Democrats on this crucial work.
It’s time for that to change. If Democrats want to win, we need to equip our candidates with winning teams – ones that are professional, well-trained, and reflective of the diversity of America and our electoral base.
That’s where Arena comes in. We recruit and train campaign staff, deploy them to game-changing campaigns, and support both staff and candidates on the path to victory.
We will need more than 43,000 trained campaign staff to effectively compete up and down the ballot in 2024. Join us in building the teams that power victories.
Career readiness programs that land our graduates high- impact political jobs, and resources to help employers hire exceptional political talent.
Free toolkits, tutorials, and templates for winning campaigns, built with industry experts, and available to races up and down the ballot.
Targeted investments in majority-making down ballot races, including candidate training programs and support from Arena Staff Fellows.
