Crafting and Staying on Message: A Brief Guide to Starting Your Communication Operation

Remember that time George W. Bush asked “is our children learning?” Or when Donald Trump lampooned the media for all that “negative covfefe?” Those are just two examples of what inarticulate communication looks like. Don’t get caught off guard. Join Nicholas as he explores how to craft and stay on message. He will also cover the essentials for setting up your communication operation.

The Importance and Power of Young Adults in Today’s Political Environment

A generation of young adults was inspired and energized by Barack Obama, as were millions of formerly under-represented minorities. How can Democrats continue to reach out to these populations so the power of their voices is amplified and mobilized for a better future? Taikein Cooper shares his own insights as a young candidate, Chair of the Prince Edward County Democrats, popular speaker, podcaster and political activist on this important topic as he discusses mobilizing millennials and under-represented constituencies.
