So You Want to Run for Office?

Democracy for America Online Night School

March 9, 5 - 6 pm

Are you or someone you know thinking about throwing your hat in the ring as a candidate? Ready to run for office to fight for progressive values? This Night School will cover key things to consider as you weigh a potential run for office in this urgent moral moment -- what questions to ask of yourself, your district, and your community. We'll also hear from candidates and elected officials who've made that big decision themselves, and we'll review key steps for how to launch your campaign successfully.

If we're going to stop Trump and his violent agenda, we must resist but also rebuild at the state and local level -- creating a reflective democracy, from voters to staffers to candidates, and electing progressive champions up and down the ballot who run with courage and conviction on progressive values. And that means a new wave of leaders need to step up and run in all 50 states -- for city councils, school boards, mayoral seats, state legislatures, Congress, and more.

Join us on March 9 to get the skills and tips for how to make it happen!
