We convene, train, and support the next generation of candidates and campaign staff.

Democracy is on the line this November.

But even the best candidates can’t save us on their own.

That’s where Arena comes in.

We recruit and train campaign staff, connect them to promising campaigns, and then support both staff and candidates on the path to victory.

Arena Academy

We provide best-in-class training to aspiring campaign staff, with a focus on recruiting and supporting women, people of color, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Arena Careers

We connect Academy graduates with career opportunities on campaigns and in progressive organizations through 1:1 coaching, direct referrals, and our bespoke Arena Careers platform, the LinkedIn for politics.

Arena Toolbox

We support campaign staffers and candidates with a collection of free toolkits, tutorials, and templates for building winning campaigns.

Arena Candidates

We identify critical races with underinvested and overlooked candidates and provide the staff support they need to win.

We need your support.

Republicans have spent decades cultivating talent and investing for the long run, and right now we’re paying the price. Republicans control 30 state legislatures, 28 governors mansions, and are just a few seats away from regaining control of Congress. Together with an activist Supreme Court, they’re enacting policies that turn back progress on everything from abortion to voting rights to climate change. 

Arena is building a new generation of political leaders who will lead the fight to save our democracy and build progressive power for the long run. It’s going to take all of us to make change. Join us in this work.
