150. Where are you located?
Here in CA we have the Courage Campaign. It started as a fight against Prop 8. It has since expanded to cover all progressive issues.
I am trying to go to the Courage Academy

Here is the email I got, I've since applied.

Dear --

If you care about the future of California, our one-day Courage Academy training in the Central Coast will be ground zero for change on February 28.

From Camp Courage to Equality Teams and Deputy Field Organizers mobilizing activists across California, the Courage Campaign is dedicated to building progressive infrastructure in our state.

And now, we're about to launch Courage Academy -- the training program that will make 2010 a new era for progressive change in our state.

Modeled after Harvard Professor Marshall Ganz's "Movement Building" trainings, Courage Academy is a one-day intensive organizing workshop. In 2008, Ganz's model served as the basis for "Camp Obama," a training program credited with helping build the organizing base that was integral to the presidential campaign's success.

Now we're bringing Ganz's training model to California for one-day Courage Academy events across California, from the Bay Area to Orange County. Sign up here to attend a Courage Academy on the Central Coast on Feb. 28. APPLICATION DEADLINE: 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16:

Each day that passes without progressive reform is another day that California falls further and further behind. From health care and marriage equality to equality of access to affordable education, California is failing to reflect the progressive values we hold dear.

Meanwhile, California's June and November elections are shaping up to be a critical showdown between community and big business interests. More than 90 statewide ballot propositions have been filed with election officials or proposed in the state legislature, though not all of them will make the ballot.

California's future is on the line. That's why participants at Courage Academy will work together on a strategy for building coalitions and a local base of supporters that can bring progressive reform to California in 2010.

Want real change? Attend a Courage Academy and help build a movement for progressive reform in California. Sign up now to attend Courage Academy in the Central Coast on Feb. 28. APPLICATION DEADLINE: 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16:

Thanks for being a part of this wonderful community. We can't wait to see you at Courage Academy.

Anthony Ash
Central California Field Organizer

The Courage Campaign is an online organizing network that empowers more than 700,000 grassroots and netroots supporters to push for progressive change and full equality in California and across the country.
