Dispatch 6/7/18--Become a Party Leader

Are you a leader within the party? Do you want to be? If so, please apply for the Indiana Democratic Party's Emerging Leaders Project! 

The Emerging Leaders Project is a leadership program for up-and-coming Hoosier Democrats interested in running for office, working on campaigns or in public service. Each year, 40 Hoosier Democrats, between ages 21 and 40 years old, are selected to join the program. Participants will engage in four training sessions, are paired with a mentor in their community and are invited to various Democratic Party events throughout the year. The deadline to apply is June 15th. For more information, visit www.emergingleadersproject.org.

You may also want to consider applying for the State Party's Organizing Fellowship. With the crucial re-election campaign of Senator Joe Donnelly, key congressional races, and competitive statewide and legislative campaigns up and down the ballot, we are organizing in all 92 counties to elect Hoosier Democrats this November but need your help! If interested in being an organizing fellow, please send your application and resume here
