The Central Valley Stonewall Democratic Club will sponsor two members to attend the November 30- December 3, 2011 Victory Fund Candidate and Campaign Training in Houston, TX.
The scholarship includes the cost of registration, hotel, and airfare. The training provides comprehensive, nonpartisan training to present and future openly LGBT candidates, campaign staff and community leaders. Training attendees learn about skills and strategy by engaging in tough, realistic campaign situations.
It is the club’s intent to provide a learning environment for members that will enhance the group as a whole. "The committee feels this will enhance the club’s knowledge of campaigning and our ability to fulfill our mission of electing LGBT and allied candidates to office," says Kitty Chapman, Co-Chair of the Political Action Committee.
The complete training curriculum can be viewed at www.victoryfund.org.
All applicants will be screened and selected by the Political Action Committee. Applications must be emailed to PAC Co-Chair Kitty Chapman by October 4, 2011 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have any questions please contact Kitty at 209-365-8115.
Please note that in order to be eligible for the sponsorship, you must be a current member of the Central Valley Stonewall Democratic Club. If you are not a member, you may become one by visiting our Membership page.
