The Human Rights Campaign is launching out two great programs for people who want to help elect fair-minded officials and pass pro-equality legislation. These programs are an amazing opportunity for supporters of equality to create real change, in their own backyards and across the country. Join HRC as we get ready for one of the most important elections ever.
Camp Equality trainings will be held in 14 cities across the U.S. and will offer 2.5 days of intense training for volunteers about how to make a significant impact on a successful campaign. Camp Equality will offer both advanced and fundamental courses, covering a variety of topics including volunteer coordination, voter contact, and media relations. After participating in the Camp Equality training, you will be equipped with the skills necessary to be effective campaign volunteer.
The trainings will be held in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Houston, Albuquerque, Las Vegas, Northern Virginia, Cincinnati, Long Island, Columbus, Denver and Dallas.
