The first step toward this goal is to train our 2019 class of trainers. The Train the Trainer workshop is Monday, November 26 from 1:30pm-5:30pm EST in the Common Cause offices at 805 15th St. NW suite 800, Washington, DC 20005.
We would like to invite you to join us! Space is filling fast, but we want you and your organization to be there! If you have organizers in the states you would like to recruit, a limited number of travel stipends and subsidized hotel rooms are available. Trainers are encouraged to stay for Common Cause’s Blueprint for a Great Democracy conference and the DI’s 7th Annual meeting Tuesday and Wednesday, November 27th and 28th.
Trainers do not need to be subject-matter experts. They do need to be good listeners, enthusiastic, committed, skilled in 1:1 communication, and able to travel to trainings. Grassroots organizing experience is helpful. Since initial Democracy Champions trainings will be held in the states, trainers from outside of DC are especially welcome.
The Democracy Initiative 2019 campaign plan that comes out of the upcoming Democracy Initiative 7th Annual Meeting will help to determine the 2019 priority states and where the trainings will be held. We will deploy democracy champions trainers to the field to help train members to strengthen democracy reform campaigns as we work to reach our goal of 20 reforms by 2020.

Thank you, again, for your commitment to advancing democracy.
