“Very intensive. Very informative. Phenomenal facilitators!”

Bonnie Watson coleman, Congresswoman, NJ-12

"[The PCCC] helped me with the training that I participated in in Washington. You helped me on the ground. And your people were calling on my behalf. And we’re just really grateful. We think this is a progressive district, and having you on our side helped us to get over the finish line."



melissa sargent, wisconsin State Assemblywoman, District 48

“PCCC's training empowered me and re-energized me, as well as providing me with new tools and networks to better fight boldly and apologetically.”

I’m a veteran of seven election cycles, and I received one of the most strategic and explicit trainings about fundraising I’ve ever received.
— Terri Austin, State Representative, Indiana District 36
