Virtual Events




In late March of 2020, Arena hosted an online training with 150 participants called Arena Academy. Arena Academies are typically five-day immersive in-person training programs for current and aspiring campaign staff. The program ends with a multi-day exercise called Arena Cup in which participants form teams to produce campaign plans based on real district data.

By the time Coronavirus hit, we had two weeks to take the event virtual.

As long as social distancing is in effect, campaigns and nonprofits will need to stage large events similar to Arena Academy. To make that transition easier, we’re sharing our report on how we successfully converted our large in-person training, Arena Academy, to the virtual event called Arena Academy Online.

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.
