DFA and CDP Will Organize Professional Training for Future Political Candidates, Campaign Volunteers, and Grassroots Activists

The California Democratic Party and Democracy for America, (DFA) the people powered PAC, are teaming up to host four Campaign Academies in California this fall.

"We're excited to partner with Democracy for America's training academy," said John Burton, Chairman of the California Democratic Party. "These trainings will give grassroots Democrats in California the tools they need to create positive change in their communities and keep Republicans on the run in the Golden State.

The DFA Campaign Academy mission is to focus, network, and train grassroots activists in the skills and strategies to take back our country, and manage successful campaigns or run for office themselves, Matt Blizek, DFAs National Training Director explains. With our weekend trainings, were building a grassroots infrastructure of skilled progressive activists in all 50 states.
