Training aims to assist more people of color get the skills necessary to run for public office

While members of the Black, Hispanic – Latino and Asian communities comprise nearly 35 percent of Connecticut’s population, they represent a very small fraction of the local elected public officials and local board and commission members in Connecticut’s 169 towns and cities.

“Increasing racial diversity and input on town/city councils and boards and commissions broadens perspectives and ensures more thorough proposals. This effort will help foster a more equitable future”, said Joe DeLong, Connecticut Conference of Municipalities (CCM) Executive Director, and CEO.

The CCM, in conjunction with the Campaign School at Yale University, will conduct a virtual two-day training program designed to assist more people of color with the skills needed to run for local public office in Connecticut.  Representation Matters: Are You Ready To Run For Local Office? will take place via Zoom on February 13 & February 27, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

 Day One on Saturday, February 13 will be led by the renowned Campaign School at Yale University, which counts Representative Gabrielle Giffords, Presidential-candidate Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and former New Haven mayor, Toni Harp, as alumnae.

This first day of intensive training will provide a foundation and skill set for launch as community leaders.

The training includes:

  • a comprehensive discussion of all of the components necessary to begin a political career both personally and professionally
  • cogent and inspiring speaking techniques
  • effective networking.

The training will specifically cover: setting up a campaign, fundraising, developing your message, building your communications and strategy plan, digital and social media best practices and more.  Other presentation topics include: making the decision to run, essentials of fundraising, finding your voice, making it matter, and a roundtable discussion with campaign school alumnae.
