BLC 2022 program:

Our 2022 program includes 13 talented, diverse, and passionate individuals working as campaign managers on key state legislative races in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Illinois.

This program provides three major benefits to Democratic politics:

Triangle
It equips state legislative campaigns with top-tier managers, giving them a competitive edge to win.
Triangle
It supplements managers’ salaries and benefits, including providing salaries for 6 weeks of full-time training, retaining the best talent from all backgrounds.
Triangle
It creates a pool of driven, resourceful, and adaptable campaign managers who will go on to deliver Democratic victories in 2023, 2024, and beyond.
