Our programs run along two tracks:
Blaze the Trail centers progressive working people who made the decision to step up their leadership and intend to run for a public office, run a ballot measure campaign, start a progressive organization, or pursue other civic engagement.
Ignite the Fight creates a community of progressive activists who want to dedicate their energy to advance their campaign skills and knowledge. We learn by doing.
Blaze The Trail
If you are a progressive working woman, immigrant, BIPOC, or a member of the LGBTQ+ community, support all Catch Fire values, and are ready to lead, we want to hear from you and possibly support your journey.
Ignite The Fight
Are you eager to develop new skills or do you already have skills you want to apply to organizing for progressive change? Are you interested in learning by doing, teaching others and willing to participate in community building of enthusiastic volunteers?
In 2021, we will focus on expanding our skills and developing habits and knowledge in the following areas:
- Communications, including social media management and organizing, media relations, and writing
- Graphic design and illustration
- Videography and animation
- Fundraising and financial management
- Campaign management
- Data mining and management
