Camp Wellstone training coming to NJ
I live in New Jersey, and go to Democracy for America meet-ups. I just received an e-mail about Camp Wellstone training coming to New Jersey. Since we are going to work for election reform, I thought this might be interesting for New Jersey residents. I think the three-day training costs $75.

Announcing Camp Wellstone New Jersey: March 4-6

* Learn new strategies to win on issues
* Help elect progressive candidates
* Build your leadership and the leadership of others

Camp Wellstone is a dynamic weekend-long training program that teaches
progressives how to win on issues and elect good candidates. We use a
distinctive approach to politics, based on Paul Wellstone's success at
integrating grassroots organizing, electoral organizing, progressive
public policy and ethical leadership. Camp Wellstone New Jersey will
be held in Middlesex County (exact location will be announced shortly)
from 3:00 pm on Friday, March 4 until 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 6.

Camp Wellstone is for anyone interested in gaining valuable skills in
effective political action: candidates and those considering a run for
office, volunteer and paid campaign workers, and citizen activists
involved in community or issue organizing. The program is fast-paced
and highly interactive. Sessions are led by grassroots organizers and
campaign professionals from across the United States and the local
community.

campaigns.

3. Citizen Activism, Advocacy and Organizing

issue-based organizing, as well as to develop the capacity of
grassroots leaders. It gives citizen activists the skills to plan and
implement successful campaigns, develop a message, build the base,
work with volunteers, advocate within legislative bodies and build
sustainable organizations. We recommend this for track for individuals
