This year’s Campaign School will take place on Friday April 10th and Saturday April 11th. In its 18 year existence the program has trained more than 500 social workers from across the United States. Those who attend leave with an understanding of how to run a campaign as well as strategies for political action. Topics will include:
- Deciding when and how to run for office.
- Building a voter base.
- Communicating your message.
- Using social media.
- Public speaking
- Career paths for social workers in political settings.
