Cory Booker unveils "Justice Academy" to recruit, teach volunteers

In an effort to build grassroots support, 2020 Democratic presidential contender and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker launched a volunteer training program Wednesday that prioritizes teaching community organizing skills.

The program, named the "Justice Academy," will be held in New Jersey and the four early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina. Volunteers participating in the eight-week program will learn community organizing techniques to engage supporters around a wide array of Booker's main campaign issues, including criminal justice reform, gun violence prevention, and health care.

"Living and serving in Newark for the past 20 years, I learned just how powerful members of the community can be -- and that's why this sort of grassroots organizing is central to my campaign," Booker, who was a former community organizer in Newark, said. "With the Justice Academy, we're building a bench of community leaders who will sharpen their skills to become even more advocates for justice in communities across the nation."
