It’s been quite a year! This cycle turned out much differently than we wanted - or planned. So many questions remain for our movement and its future, the first of which - for many of us - is: “Next steps?”
Mapping out the next phase in an organizing career journey can be challenging in the aftermath of the best elections, yet alone a seriously disappointing one like 2016. But that’s why Democratic GAIN is here! Since 2003 - during similarly challenging political times for our side - we have been helping progressive organizing talent find their next steps - and progressive campaigns and organizations staff up before and after campaign cycles - and all points in between. And in the wake of the 2016 election, we are more determined than ever to grow and further diversify our movement for the battles ahead.
So many of you, from all around the country, have reached out to us regarding our Next Steps Post 2016 Election programming. So by popular demand - and to accommodate staffers coming from HFA and campaigns across our nation - we have extended our Next Steps: 2017 Post Election Career Fair” at the National Education Association to Monday, January 9th from 8:30AM - 10:30 AM and Noon - 4 PM, to include a co-hosted session with Hillary for America,which is especially for Clinton campaign staffers from all 50 states.
With the help of employers from progressive campaigns and organizations nationwide, we will build an even stronger movement, one that is ready to win in 2018, 2020 - and beyond. But hurry, spots are limited. Reserve yours today!
Thank you for being a part of this movement. See you at the Fair(s)!
