EMILY'S LIST and The Farm Team announce training

by: The Farm Team

Fri Dec 07, 2012 at 12:54:26 PM EST

The Farm Team is pleased to announce that we are partnering with EMILY's List to offer three training opportunities in Virginia for pro-choice Democratic women and their key campaign staff in the next few months.

We hope you will share this invitation with any current women officeholders or future candidates that would benefit from this training.

As you may know, EMILY's List is a political donor network and political resource for pro-choice Democratic women candidates. EMILY's List has initiated a program designed to recruit and train women to run for and serve in elected office in the states.

Whether a pro-choice Democratic woman is currently serving on the school board, or in the General Assembly, or just beginning to think about running for elective office, we are certain this training will provide her with the skills and inspiration needed to successfully run for office.

We will hold our first training in Lynchburg on Monday, December 17th 2012.  The RSVP link for the first event is

The program, including materials and meals is free, however space is limited. Partial participation is not possible - you must make a commitment to attend the full program in order to be allocated a seat at the training.

Future trainings will be held Monday, January 14th in Northern Virginia and Friday, February 8th in Williamsburg. Stay tuned for details and RSVP links for those dates.

If you have any questions, or would like further details, please contact Jessica Byrd at 202-326-1400 or or Julie Copeland of The Farm Team at 804-272-5955 or
