Why The Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School?

If we are going to fight the dark money special interest groups, we need to have the best talent in the field. The Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School, offered by the Democratic Party of Evanston has created a curriculum designed to take decades of personal political experience and distill it into a 6-class course designed to address the main points of any grassroots campaign.

How does The Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School work?

Students will learn the science of campaigning, how to use the Democratic party’s recommended technology stack, how to canvass, how to phone bank, how to run events and how to recruit and manage volunteers-techniques learned over countless campaign cycles.

What is the goal of the Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School?

Graduate trainers will assume entry level organizing roles in 2020 campaigns (either as a volunteer or a paid basis). Time is a luxury our candidates can’t afford. Progressives like you will bring the much needed organizing skills to a campaign in the important early growth moments.
