Last month the Central Valley Stonewall Democratic Club charged the Political Action Committee (PAC) with selecting two members out of a pool of applicants to receive scholarships to attend the Victory Fund Candidate and Campaign Training. PAC is pleased to announce that they have made a decision and that Dyane Burgos and Gustavo Medina will be representing CV Stonewall at the training this year!
The Victory Fund Candidate and Campaign Training provides comprehensive, non-partisan training to present and future LGBT candidates, campaign staff, and community leaders. Attendees learn necessary skills and strategies by engaging in tough, realistic campaign situations. The Victory Fund has trained hundreds of openly LGBT candidates and campaign workers how to build winning campaigns.
Dyane Burgos and Gustavo Medina will be attending the training in Houston, TX this November. The scholarship includes the cost of registration, hotel, and airfare. After the training, Dyane and Gustavo have committed to volunteer forty hours on a state or local campaign for a candidate endorsed by CV Stonewall. They will also present a synopsis of the training at the next club meeting.
