Lillian’s List is excited to partner with our friends at Equality NC on a Future Candidate Training just for members of the LGBTQ+ community. We are hoping to train the future of LGBTQ+ representation in North Carolina politics.
If you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community and interested in running for office we hope you’ll apply! There is a $20 registration fee once you are accepted. Scholarships are available.
The Future Candidate Training takes place via Zoom over three days and there are two pre-recorded trainings that you’ll receive the week of the training. All trainees are expected to make their best effort to attend every live session in the training, however we understand this is not always possible. There will be multiple iterations of the Future Candidate Training in 2021 and 2022 so you will have opportunities to make up live sessions. All trainees will have access to a Resource Center with resources to help you start your campaign.
This is the schedule for the training series:
Saturday, June 26, 10am-12pm Build Your Network
Saturday, June 26, 1-3pm Fundraising
Tuesday, June 29, 6-7pm Compliance
Wednesday, June 30, 6-8pm Personal Narrative Workshop – we will provide the pre-recorded Personal Narrative Training in advance of the workshop. Members of the LGBTQ+ community who have already attended a Lillian’s List candidate training are welcome to join only this session.
The Social Media session by 2020 Commissioner of Agriculture candidate Jenna Wadsworth is pre-recorded and you will receive a link to complete this on your own.
