Camp Wellstone Comes to Baltimore June 23rd to 25th

If you are interested in getting involved in progressive political campaigns, then you should sign up to get hands-on training at Camp Wellstone Baltimore. Everyone I have talked to who has attended the training has had a great experience.

Camp Wellstone will be held in Baltimore, Maryland the weekend of June 23-25. Click here to register.

Camp Wellstone is a training program that teaches progressives how to win on issues and elect good candidates. They use a distinctive approach to politics, based on Paul Wellstone's success at integrating grassroots organizing, electoral organizing, progressive public policy and ethical leadership.

The training is highly interactive, combining exercises, lectures, and simulations over the course of 2.5 days. Camp runs Friday from 2:30pm-9:00pm, Saturday from 9:00am-6:00pm, and Sunday from 9:00am-3:00pm. They will keep you busy the whole time! The exact location of the camp will be announced soon.

Camp Wellstone is divided into three tracks:

Candidate track. This is for people who have made the decision to run for office.

Campaign track. This track focuses on how to be an effective staff or volunteer member of a winning progressive campaign.

Citizen activist track. For people interested in citizen lobbying, issue advocacy, and community organizing, this track provides skills in how to win on issues.

For more information about Camp Wellstone or to see which track is right for you, click here.

Camp Wellstone fills very quickly. If you are interested, sign up here.

The cost is $75 or just $35 for students, low-income, or unemployed participants. Camp participants are responsible for their own accommodations.

If you have questions about the training, contact Cietta Kiandoli by email or call 202-419-3077.

Do they teach you how to turn a memorial service into a political pep rally at Camp Wellstone?

Bad form, whoever you are, commentor #1.

Besides, I hope anyone's memorial service is celebrated both by comforting those who cared about the deceased and by loved ones and friends (20,000 that day) espousing the deceased's selfless accomplishments, beliefs, hopes, and dreams and affirmation that their life's good works will be carried forward.

And, please keep in mind, Paul and members of his family were killed en route to attend someone else's funeral service (opting to skip a fundraiser). That kind of selflessness probably helped Paul win his first Senate race despite being outspent 7-to-1.
