The NYU DC Dialogues Student Executive Board hosted a conversation on the ins and outs of campaign management from the experts themselves. The conversation featured former Campaign Coordinator, Brianna Carmen (Beto for Congress Committee and Beto For Texas). Brianna has experience in volunteer coordination, marketing, finances, getting out the vote, and other activities supporting the effort of the campaign.
As the 2020 presidential election heats up, political campaigns are looking for student volunteers to reach voters. Volunteers play integral roles in the election by registering new voters and mobilizing the party's base supporters. Students learned how to make a real impact as a campaign volunteer and the ways in which they could get involved.
This workshop was open to students only. Please note that this workshop may have been filmed and/or photographed.
