Wellstone Campaign School Coming Up
The Wellstone Foundation gives highly regarded political campaign schools. This year the three-day school in Seattle will take place in May, the exact dates to be set soon. As the Foundation’s website says: “We draw from Paul and Sheila Wellstone’s innovative approach to politics – something we call the Wellstone Triangle. The three elements of the triangle are: progressive public policy, which lays out an agenda for action; grassroots community organizing, which builds a constituency to fight for change; and grassroots electoral politics, which provides tools for changing what leadership looks like and how to influence policymakers.”
In other words, it’s not just about winning the immediate election, but building the movement so that there’s capacity to win elections into the future – and change the power structure.
If you want to be a candidate, help with an electoral campaign, or mobilize to influence policy, there is a track in the school for you. Click here to find out more.
