On Saturday (Sept. 10), Tezlyn Figaro hosted a nonpartisan political training boot camp titled “Push The Line” in Atlanta, Georgia.

Over 250 political candidates, operatives, and organizers from Louisiana, California, Nebraska, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and Georgia attended the boot camp.

In a video posted on Figaro’s Youtube account, Atlanta rapper Killer Mike cosigned the event. “This is what they do, [it] doesn’t matter which party you belong to, [it] doesn’t matter your political affiliation, it matters that you want to organize, you wanna learn how to organize. Tezlyn is a hell of a teacher,” he said.

He then continued, “It matters that your a** want to get out and organize locally.”

The next in person training, which will be a follow-up to the recent training, will be held in December but seating is limited to no more than 100 attendees. Another in person training will be held in Los Angeles, California in January 2023. There will be an online training scheduled to take place on Oct. 22. To join a “Push The Line” training boot camp, you can text PUSHTHELINE to 66866 and you’ll be added to the mailing list.
