The virtual training sessions will be in lieu of physical trainings due to COVID-19 and are for individuals who would like to run for office or get involved in a campaign
TRENTON, NJ — The New Jersey Democratic State Committee has partnered with the National Democratic Training Committee to offer two virtual training sessions that will take place on May 11 and 12. While the party has traditionally held substantial in person training events in previous years, these online sessions will be offered in order to comply with social distancing orders while continuing to prepare the next generation of Democratic candidates and campaign operatives.
“Training the next generation of Democrats is critical to our efforts to continue to build our party from the bottom up,” said NJDSC Chairman John Currie. “New Jersey Democrats who want to get involved in campaigns and perhaps even run for office at some point should take advantage of these free training sessions. I am grateful for our partnership with NDTC that has allowed us to bring these virtual trainings to people all across our state.”

“These training sessions are a fantastic opportunity for future candidates and campaign workers to gain critical knowledge about how to build a winning campaign, even during a time of crisis,” said NJDSC Executive Director Saily Avelenda. “I encourage anyone who has the time to participate in these trainings and learn how to bring lasting change to their own communities.”
Topics that will be covered include field, communications, digital strategy and fundraising. The trainings will also go over how to conduct a campaign when you can’t meet voters or fundraise in person due to the COVID-19 crisis.
