Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!

September commemorates Hispanic Heritage Month here in America, celebrating the rich diversity of culture, food, and media that Hispanic and Latinx communities bring to our country.

At NDTC, we’re proud to partner with several organizations committed to filling the gap in Hispanic and Latinx representation in elected office and progressive politics. Check a few out below 

Latino Victory is the largest organization dedicated to electing Latino progressives at all levels of government.

Pa’lante recruits, trains, and supports Latino individuals in running for office and serving on campaign staff for down-ballot races across Georgia.

Instituto’s mission is to build sustained political power with low-income and communities of color in Arizona, with a focus on Latino candidates and staff.

So You Want to Run for Office: Hispanic Heritage Month Edition
Tuesday, September 19 at 1pm ET

Alongside our partners at InstitutoLatino Victory, and Pa’lante, we welcome Latino and/or Hispanic candidates who have ever considered running for office to join this introductory training session.

Reviewing the types of office one can run for, sharing the news, and beginning to find ways to garner support, this training will take you from thinking about running to having the tools to make it a reality.

Not only that, Secretary Julián Castro will join for a special welcome and introduction!


Field Tactics 101
Monday, September 18 at 1pm ET

Missed out earlier this month? Don’t worry! We’re hosting Field Tactics 101 again this Monday.

This comprehensive training reviews the five key field tactics that winning campaigns draw upon: phone banking, text banking, door-to-door canvassing, events, and relational organizing. You’ll be able to learn the positives and negatives of each tactic, plus the basics of getting started with any one of them.


How to Put Your GOTV Plan Into Action
Friday, September 22 at 1pm ET

Plans are great, but they’re useless if you don’t know how to translate them into tangible action!

You’ll walk away from Friday’s training with a better understanding of GOTV timelines, goal-setting, and maximizing volunteer recruitment ahead of your efforts. This tactical training is perfect for candidates, staff, and volunteers who may be the ones running a GOTV program themselves.
