Deepen Your Knowledge of  The Roles of A Campaign Team

 Standing behind any candidate or initiative campaign is the Campaign Team.  The more organized they are, the more flexible they are, and the deeper their commitment is to the candidate’s or initiative’s platform can be the difference between an effective or mediocre campaign.

"I think it has made me more confident in the way I communicate my progressive vision because now I am connected to a network of progressives whom I am happy to know and support. This kind of network is invaluable. I think the leaps I have made recently have had a lot to do with the personal relationships I have developed through the LFC.
