In 2020, the IDCCA launched a statewide Virtual Training Series (VTS) to help train County Chairs, Precinct Committeepersons, Volunteers, & Candidates throughout Illinois. The VTS is an hour-long session that connects grassroots Democrats with elected officials & politicos to help build their organizations.
All trainings start at 6pm (unless otherwise noted). The training will last around an hour with a 15-minute Q&A session at the end.
This session we will focus on the nuts & bolts of county level redistricting. This session is specifically targeted for new and current Democratic County Board, City Council, Village Board, etc. officials to help provide them with resources. This VTS session will be part of a series of sessions targeted at new and currently elected Democrats.
The training will be conducted by Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioner Josina Morita. Josina Morita is a Commissioner of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District. Elected in 2016, she is the first Asian American elected to a countywide board in Cook County—the second largest county in the country. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and International Race Relations from Pitzer College and a Masters in Urban Planning and Public Policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The training will last around an hour with a 15-minute Q&A session at the end.
