I just got an email from Jim Dean of Democracy for America (DFA) with very exciting news. DFA is bringing back Night School! If you've ever wondered where you can get the skills to mount an issue campaign, run for office, or just be a better campaign volunteer, here's your chance. DFA Night Schools have taught tens of thousands of Democratic activists how to organize an effective campaign in the comfort of their own homes.
Sign up for one or all of the trainings on the following subjects:

Elections are about voters making an important choice -- and as human beings, underneath many choices, there is a strong, compelling narrative.
