Wellstone Data and Analytics Camp


Data and Analytics Camp

April 3 - 7, 2017 • Miami, Florida

Wellstone Action’s Data and Analytics Camp equips progressive leaders with the cutting-edge data and analytics skills necessary to support electoral and issue-based organizing. In today's political climate, we believe that the best approach to organizing is one that includes all experiences; this training is built on a foundation of intersectional, hands-on learning and mutual respect.

This five-day training accommodates practitioners at various entry points and includes blended curriculum from data, analytics, and organizing strategies to help campaigners and activists build winning online and offline campaigns.

The ideal candidates for this training fall into one of two groups:
-- A full-time data or analytics practitioner looking to sharpen or refresh their skills
-- A progressive movement practitioner or volunteer with an interest in learning how data and analytics can support their organizing or campaign work and an appetite for learning skills on a range of tools

Attendees will participate in a mock campaign exercise and present their campaign plan at the close of the training.
