Educate, Advocate, Organize!  Attend Camp Wellstone in Las Vegas April 16-18

Wellstone Action is a national center for training and leadership development in the progressive movement.  Founded in January 2003, Wellstone Action's mission is ignite leadership in people and power in communities to win change in the progressive tradition of Paul and Sheila Wellstone. For the past seven years, Wellstone Action has worked to turn the tide away from conservatives and give tens of thousands of progressives the skills to win elections and advance an agenda of change.  Now, with the election of President Barack Obama and the mobilization of millions of Americans to become engaged in politics for the first time, Wellstone Action and the progressive movement have incredible opportunities to not only tap into the energy of those volunteers and voters, but build on the skills and experience to develop thousands of candidates, campaign workers, and issue campaign organizers.
