Campaigning Through Crisis Webinars

Campaigning through Crisis Webinar Series

We understand that running a traditional campaign is not possible during the public health crisis. That is why Emerge is renewing our three-part webinar series that will help prepare Democratic women to continue to campaign during this time. Leaders matter, and we want to make sure they are equipped to run and serve their communities as candidates and elected officials.

This webinar series is open to all Democratic self-identified women. While the webinars connect to the each other, each of them stand alone. You do not need to attend the previous webinars in the series to understand the others.

These sessions are available at a fair market rate, in compliance with campaign finance law. Candidates and campaigns can use campaign funds to pay for this training.

Each webinar is $15.
