We ignite change by getting pro-choice
Democratic women elected to office.

Run to Win Candidate Trainings

Built on the idea that you don’t need a Ph.D. or years of political experience to get involved, Run to Win trains women interested in running for office from the ground up.

This year, we’ll be hosting online and in-person trainings for women who are thinking about running for office. These trainings will guide you through the basic nuts and bolts of planning a run for office: The questions to ask yourself, the things to start thinking about, and the steps you can take to get there. Tip: The most important thing is to be willing to learn and ask questions.

Check out our regularly updated training schedule and sign up to get more information as training dates are confirmed.
