We're now expecting over 175 people to gather in Falls Church for an intensive-two day training program in campaign leadership for grassroots activists - an amazing testament to progressive enthusiasm and strength here in Virginia. When that many people are willing to give up two beautiful weekend days during the summer to gain political skills, it's a vivid sign that ordinary Virginians are willing to go to extraordinary lengths stand up and fight against right-wing extremism and for sensible leadership for all Virginians.
It's going to be a great weekend of intensive skill-building workshops and networking opportunities. It's not too late to join us - we hope to see you there!
In addition to our full training day tomorrow from 8:30 - 5:00, our group of fired-up, newly trained activists will have an opportunity to meet with a number of great Democratic challengers for House of Delegates tomorrow night at our Candidates Forum. If you can't make it for the full two days of training, you're still welcome to stop by and join us for the forum from 5:30 - 7:00PM to meet some inspiring, courageous candidates.
