Camp VicTorie – a day that will change your life
If you give me a day in your busy schedule, I promise to change your life!
Are you willing to help fuel my campaign for California Assembly with your energy, your creativity, and your passion? Are you willing to help me build a grassroots movement to fix California? If so, please register for the inaugural Camp VicTorie taking place on November 13, 2011.
Camp VicTorie is an exciting, fun, inspiring training program in leadership development, campaigning, and community organizing. Dozens of committed supporters will join together to learn new skills, build a community, and become the backbone of my campaign to represent the new 50th District in the California Assembly.
In 2008, Camp Obama transformed a political campaign into an unstoppable and magnetic social movement for change by empowering and training new leaders. It infused the campaign with the motto I intend to borrow: “Respect – Empower – Include.”
After the passage of Proposition 8, Mike Bonin, Lisa Powell and I adopted the Camp Obama model and created Camp Courage, an acclaimed program that trained 1600 activists for LGBT equality across California. The Camp Courage team is reuniting to create Camp VicTorie.
Our kick-off training event will be on Sunday, November 13, 2011 from 10 am – 4 pm, at a beautiful and scenic location in Santa Monica. Can you please join us and make a commitment to be a “super volunteer” with our campaign? Register using the form to the right!
Camp VicTorie will include: campaign overview, principles of empowering leadership, the how-to’s of hosting a successful home phone bank or a friend-and-fund-raising party, and online organizing and social media tools. The heart and soul will be the transformative experience of Camps Obama and Courage: finding your powerful voice through personal narrative – the “Story of Self”.
To attend, I ask that you be willing to commit to hosting an event or phone bank in your home and/or volunteering with my campaign at least eight (8) hours per month in 2012. All attendees will also be asked to help me reach my goals in one creative way or another this year (2011), but more on that at Camp! In exchange, you’ll have a blast, learn a lot, meet incredible new friends, and become the leadership team that empowers and wins my campaign. We’re creating an uprising of civic engagement for a better California, and we want you!
Will you please join me? Please register online BY SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2011. We have limited spaces available and are holding one for you! *
