Additional Training Opportunities
Voter Protection Law School Bootcamp: The Democratic Party is launching the Voter Protection Law School Bootcamp in states across the country. The program will train the next generation of voter protection staff and volunteers. Deploying talent from our best law schools, the Voter Protection Law School Bootcamp Program will train and engage people where they are needed most — on the ground, in battleground states. The program will run from October 2019 through early December 2019 and will target second- and third-year law students. It will consist of two classroom hours per week, with lectures covering the history, current state, and future of voting rights and voter protection work. Most importantly, the bootcamp will train students on the practical methods of running a voter protection program during a campaign cycle. Participants will be responsible for conducting at least one voter engagement and volunteer engagement program. To have voter protection staffers ready to support the 2020 campaign, we need to start training now.
