“We knew long before the 2018 elections that women are more than ready to run for office as their unapologetic selves, which is why we have been creating a pipeline of women candidates, staff, supporters, donors, and activists outside of the traditional party structure,”

“We knew long before the 2018 elections that women are more than ready to run for office as their unapologetic selves, which is why we have been creating a pipeline of women candidates, staff, supporters, donors, and activists outside of the traditional party structure,” says Erin Vilardi, the Founder & CEO of VoteRunLead. “There are 519,632 elected positions across the US and we need to train women to run for each of these offices with real resources to continue the momentum we have seen in 2016 and 2018. Women are more active in politics than ever before and as a nonpartisan political training organization, we are able to access more women to create a diversity of thought in national politics.”
