Power Summits

Don’t just talk about it. Do it.

The Power Summit is an intensive three-day training and action program for people who are highly motivated to build powerful state and local campaigns, organizations and coalitions aimed at creating positive community change. We've got a Power Summit coming up in Portland, Maine, April 24 - April 26, 2009. Click here to get all the info.

Our last Power Summit was held December 2007, in Long Island, N.Y. Check out this video of the summit's highlights:


What will I learn?

Power Summits focus on cutting-edge skills and strategies necessary for developing a strong campaign to win at the ballot box and in the legislature.

Grassroots skills covered include phonebanking, canvassing, volunteer recruitment and fundraising, helping us support and sustain local political or social campaigns that move our communities forward. We divide the training into two "tracks." The field track includes topics such as developing volunteer leaders and how to successfully challenge our opponents use of race and faith to divide our communities. The fundraising track covers topics like how to build a fundraising campaign.

For leaders who have already have experience in either fundraising or the field, we offer advanced sessions designed to further hone these skills.
