About the training

Join us during a five-week campaign training series where expert political consultants will teach you the skills you need to take your leadership to elected office. This series will explore a variety of core campaign skills from a cross-disability perspective, including operations, communications, fundraising, and voter outreach. This course is open to everyone, and we particularly encourage multi-marginalized people with disabilities to join us as we learn from five experienced political consultants of color about how to run for office. 

This training series is free for NCIL members. There is a $50.00 registration fee for non-members, per call-in site. Fee does not apply per participant in group, provided the group uses the same conference line.

The trainings will be available via teleconference and CART (captioned) webcast. Same day registration ends at Noon Eastern.  Register now!
