Last Friday evening was no typical night at the Oakland office. We kept our doors open well into the night, welcoming new volunteers to a training, along with offering the opportunity to have one-on-one introductory meetings and receive training on Dashboard, the online field office for the campaign. The Oakland team turned out in force, with Peggy, California Political Director, Amy, Regional Field Director, Jocelyn, Deputy Regional Field Director, and Stefan, California Training Director all contributing to the orientation. By the end, the volunteers were so riled up, they were chanting “Fired up! Ready to go!” along with Edith S. Childs in the now-famous video.
Don’t worry if you missed last Friday’s event – there’s more where that came from. Check out photos from the night here and be sure to come to our next First Friday, on August 3!
