Candidate Training: Campaigning During Coronavirus Q&A

More free training from the National Democratic Training Committee. Training will take place on the Zoom platform, so you might want to check that out prior to the class.

With the COVID-19 outbreak changing just about everything, you need to adapt your campaign.

Do you have questions on how to do that?

Join the National Democratic Training Committee on Thursday, May 21 from 1:00-2:00pm ET for our weekly virtual question and answer series!

This week Kelly Dietrich, our CEO and Founder, will answer questions you may currently have during this time of navigating COVID-19 (Coronavirus) with regard to running for office, working on a campaign, or building your local Democratic party’s infrastructure. Tune in to learn more about NDTC’s free resources available to you and to ask him questions!

A recommended (not required) course to take in our Online Academy is “Starting a Career in Politics.”

This is your opportunity to ask the questions you have during this time of navigating COVID-19 as you run for office, work on a campaign, or build your local Democratic party’s infrastructure.

RSVP here.


If you would like to donate to your local branch of the Democratic Party, here is the Tongass Democrats’ ActBlue donation page. As a reminder, we had to cancel our main annual fundraiser this year – the one that helped fund Democratic and Progressive campaigns around Alaska! – due to COVID, so your support would be especially helpful right now.

TD Times 5/1/2020

Good Morning Tongass Democrats and Friends,

It’s already May Day – and we have a lot to catch up on! I hope you’re all doing well and getting some fresh air (while remaining socially distant!). Last month we wrapped up our vote by mail primary and our virtual caucuses. This month we’ll be hosting our monthly business meeting and State Convention virtually.

These are all new grounds for us and the party – we’ve had some bumps on the way but we’re learning as we go and working together to move us forward. We appreciate everyone’s patience through the process and hope you tune into the upcoming events below!
