Montgomery, Alabama Democrats are organizing multiple training sessions in Alabama to try to reinvigorate a party that has fallen to minority status in state government.

A new organization, the Alabama Democratic Majority, has announced a "grassroots convention" Aug. 3 in Birmingham. Executive Director Bradley Davidson says it will cover everything from registering voters to helping voters comply with Alabama's new law requiring a photo ID to vote.

Democracy for America, founded by former presidential candidate Howard Dean, is planning a campaign academy in Birmingham Sept. 7-8. Spokesman Neil Sroka says it will help Democrats rally together for the 2014 elections and help elect progressive Democrats.

Meanwhile, Alabama Democratic Party leader Nancy Worley says the group will also hold training sessions once the field of candidates begins to take shape.
