This political training boot camp is designed to target Democrats of color who may have considered running for office but are uncertain how realistic it is to win in largely white districts.  We have hired professional campaign faculty and invited elected officials of color to show you step by step how to win!  Sheriff Jerry Clayton, Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood, Reps. Santana and Tlaib, Commissioners Rabhi and Smith, MDP Executive Director Garrett Arwa, and MDP Chairman Lon Johnson are just a few of the experts who will present, guide, and mentor you during your run for office.  Cost is $50 to help cover your meals.  Need-based scholarships are available.  Visit to register NOW or to apply for a scholarship.

All Ann Arbor Dems should feel free to text, call, or email me 24/7.  Thank you for your continued support and efforts toward advancing our values.  I am looking forward to seeing your Democratic Party smile, talent, and commitment very soon.
