Elevate: Campaign Training for People with Disabilities

From NCIL: For More Info, Go Here...

People with disabilities are one fifth of the population. Many of us are great leaders in our communities and our professions due to skills that we’ve developed advocating for ourselves and others: we’re adaptable, resilient, creative, and great at problem solving.

Perhaps you have been thinking about how to take your leadership to a new level. You’ve considered running for local school board, city council, or another local leadership position but you don’t know where to start, and the idea of running a political campaign is intimidating. If you’re ready to elevate your leadership to elected office, this training series is for you!

Join us during a five-week campaign training series where expert political consultants will teach you the skills you need to take your leadership to elected office. This series will explore a variety of core campaign skills from a cross-disability perspective, including operations, communications, fundraising, and voter outreach. This course is open to everyone, and we particularly encourage multi-marginalized people with disabilities to join us as we learn from five experienced political consultants of color about how to run for office.

This training series is free for NCIL members. There is a $50.00 registration fee for non-members, per call-in site. Fee does not apply per participant in group, provided the group uses the same conference line.

The trainings will be available via teleconference and CART (captioned) webcast. Same day registration ends at Noon Eastern.

This program was made possible with generous funding from the American Association of People with Disabilities’ Paul G. Hearne Emerging Leader Award. Financial support for a fifth webinar is made possible by EMILY’s List and private donors. Please note that this webinar series is non-partisan and for educational purposes only.

Participants will be sent presentation materials in accessible formats 48 hours before each webinar. If you need additional accommodations or have questions, please contact Sarah Blahovec, Disability Vote Organizer, at sarah@ncil.org or 202-207-0334 ext 1103.
