Practical Training for Democrats

Our Tenth Dems U program offers a chance to become a better-educated voter and a more active and effective political volunteer, and to learn the skills you need if you ever want to run for public office.

Here are a few of our July Tenth Dems U events that should help Democrats this November – and beyond.

On July 21, some 50 new users and folks who wanted to refresh their skills attended Votebuilder: Learn the Voter Database to learn the basics for using the Democrats’ voter database, including voter look-ups and creating phone bank lists.
