On Dec. 16, Richard Ojeda will host a volunteer training in Beckley, WV at 11 a.m.

The event will take place at the Raleigh County Public Library where supporters are encouraged to attend and learn more about ways that they can support Ojeda’s campaign for Congress in 2018.

Ojeda currently has nearly 700 people who have signed up to keep up with campaign updates, volunteer and show their support.

Over the last several weeks, Ojeda has accumulated a huge wave of support through social media and his infamous live town halls on Facebook.

The support is part of a larger movement where more and more people are becoming more involved in their elections and want to do more than just vote.

At the training, volunteers will learn about canvassing, phone banking, hosting events and ways to utilize social media for maximum reach. Volunteers can also access the training remotely through a link provided on the event Facebook page.

Field Coordinator Charkera Erwin will lead the event and be assisted by several Ojeda volunteers. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to meet Sen. Ojeda, ask questions and speak about the issues that matter most to them.

While it is very early in the race, Ojeda believes that his “boots on the ground” strategy is key to getting out of the vote and energizing the people of southern West Virginia.

Supporters can get more information about the volunteer training as well as how to attend remotely  at
