Democracy for America Activist Training Weekend


The DFA Training Academy’s mission is to focus, network, and train grassroots activists in the skills and strategies to take back our country. This isn’t just about the next election, or what we can do for our country every two to four years. This is about building a movement to take back our country.

Democracy for America’s unofficial motto has always been “You have the power.” The DFA Training Academy grows out of the need to harness that grassroots power in an organized, skilled, and sustained manner. Staffers, professionals, and volunteers researched and developed a curriculum for winning local elections and for organizing between elections.

Training weekend is crafted with input from local grassroots leaders. Experienced campaign professionals will cover practical strategies and tactics including communications, fundraising, voter targeting, online organizing, and building a sustainable grassroots movement. We design the program so you can go out and use the skills you learn right away. Then, we follow up with you to make sure you have the support you need to organize your community.
