Our 2012 Boot Camp Graduates!

About the Boot Camp:

The inaugural Fem Dems candidate training Boot Camp was an exceptional opportunity for feminist Democrats who are candidates or considering running for office to learn the ins and outs of a campaign.  

California’s foremost political professionals  headlined a series of panel discussions and workshops on fundraising, election finance law, messaging, grassroots organizing, and social & new media.

Immediately following the boot camp was a reception for all members, attendees, panelists and sponsors at the Grange in Sacramento.  The reception offered everyone an opportunity to network with rising candidates, accomplished professionals, dedicated sponsors and the members of the Fem Dems who work tirelessly to to provide these kind of opportunities. 

About the Sponsorship Opportunities:

The Fem Dems offered exclusive sponsorship opportunities to leaders in business, politics, and the community.  

Sponsorship of the 2012 Fem Dems Campaign Boot Camp helps to amplify the voice of feminist Democrats in politics and provide a valuable atmosphere for women to meet, connect, and network to better support each other.
