    What is RootsCamp?

    In November, Wellstone will be hosting RootsCamp -- an annual gathering of progressive organizers from across issues and around the country who learn, celebrate, and grow together.

    RootsCamp isn’t your everyday gathering; it’s an unconference. Instead of pre-set powerpoints and expert panels, participants design sessions and decide the program. The idea is to bring together progressives of all stripes as equals, and have an honest exchange of ideas. When we learn from one another, we take away new ideas, make new connections, and strengthen our work.

  • A Data-Driven Future

    Earlier this month, 56 organizers from across the country gathered in Baltimore for Data BootCamp – a six-day intensive training designed to further the skills of those working in (or transitioning to) data-related positions that fuel progressive campaigns.
     
    They came from a diversity of backgrounds and a variety of causes to unite around a common passion for data-driven strategy. Now, with new skills, expanded networks, and amplified passions, they are ready to take our movement to the next level.

    A Huge Thank You to Our Data BootCamp Team!

    This month's Data BootCamp was the first of several crucial trainings that are new to Wellstone this year as part of our commitment to continue the work of New Organizing Institute.

    Data BootCamp was a six-day intensive training for those working in (or transitioning to) data-related positions in the progressive movement. When we say intense, we really mean it. The 56 trainees worked long and HARD, and walked away with an arsenal of new and improved skills from VAN to SQL to GIS and so much more.
