180 people attended
Generation Democracy: Training Young Progressives to Win in 2020 is a virtual conference that will focus on training Gen-Z and Millennial activists to help Democrats win the White House and both houses of Congress this November. Through comprehensive peer-to-peer training, we will equip young organizers and volunteers alike with the skills they need to effectively mobilize voters of all ages, but particularly young voters, within the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic.
