DNC Chair Tom Perez to Join Organizing Corps 2020 Welcome Barbecue in Atlanta
Organizing Corps 2020 is an unprecedented, multi-million dollar general election field effort in battleground states.
On Tuesday, June 11, DNC Chair Tom Perez will travel to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in the Organizing Corps 2020 Welcome Barbecue and training kickoff in Atlanta. Perez will be joined by students participating in the landmark program, which is designed to prepare the next generation of organizers in battleground states across the country.
Organizing Corps 2020 is an unprecedented, multi-million dollar investment by the DNC and progressive partners that will recruit, pay, and train young people to work on the 2020 presidential cycle, starting this year -- with a special focus on communities of color.
The program will ensure the eventual Democratic nominee has the support of hundreds of homegrown field organizers ready to hit the ground running in key battleground states and help win the White House in November 2020. More information about the program is available here.
