From an email sent out from the staff of 2012 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein’s website:
Throughout the course of the campaign, our focus has been on expanding and deepening the Green movement and the Green Party itself. Moving forward, one of the most important things we can do is to get our candidates elected in local and state elections. For this reason, Jill Stein for President is organizing campaign schools in many regions of the United States.
We are happy to announce that demand for these schools has been overwhelming! Confirmed locations now include Worcester, Massachusetts; Portland, Oregon; Northern and Southern California; San Antonio, Texas; and more.
Our first Green Campaign School took place in mid January in central Minnesota, and the feedback we got on it was very positive! The school focused on building skills at all levels, from assembling a campaign team, to creating effective campaign literature, raising money, handling and using voter data, financial reporting, media campaigns, the role of the candidate, and setting and working toward goals.
In general, these schools will be one-to-two day events, hosted by our campaign team together with Green leaders in your area. The idea is to provide lessons from the experience accumulated in our campaign.
