Beyond Resistance: Turning Anger into Progressive Action
Want to be part of reforming the Democratic Party following the staggering losses of 2016? Then join us in Tampa on March 18-19 for the 2017 Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida Annual Conference. Learn about the nuts and bolts of organizing in your own communities. Programming will include workshops on working with the media, sharing resistance space with like-minded progressive groups, and developing strategies for the Florida Legislative Session.
We're very happy to announce that our very special guest presenter will be media strategist and trainer Joel Silberman! Joel and DPCF member Vicki Roush will present an interactive session on how to be a media star. Future candidates will also have a chance to do a breakout session with Joel and Vicki.
