Hello. Today is the most amazing day. It is sunny outside and there is a slight breeze.
RUN NOW is a virtual, campaign training program teaching folks how to run for office, the skills to become a professional campaign operative, and methods to win campaigns.
RUN NOW’s vision is to build feminist political power by training political operatives & NOW candidates on the best practices and giving them the tools required to win. We envision a future where RUN NOW candidates usher in policies and implement laws that support and uplift NOW’s six core issues at the local, state, and federal levels.
In 2023, from January – March RUN NOW will host panel discussions and open conversations with NOW endorsed candidates about what it’s like to actually RUN right NOW. You will hear directly from candidates for Congress, State House, and local offices about the realities of campaigning in 2022.
From March- November RUN NOW will host 1-hour virtual trainings at 1:30 PM ET / 10:30 AM PT to help our candidates & operatives prepare for this next cycle of elections. Prospective candidates and future campaign employees can learn the full mechanics of campaigning from experts and thought leaders from top leading political organizations.
RUN NOW is a community and a resource – join us to sharpen your skill set and prepare for the fights ahead. As we gear up for another year of defending our reproductive justice rights in statehouses across the country, training and recruiting our bench of candidates and professionals to run in 2024 is crucial.
As the United States’ largest grassroots feminist organization, the NOW community is made up of thousands of smart, driven, and talented changemakers. RUN NOW will be a catalyst to motivate more feminists to run for office and to lead winning campaigns in local, state, and national races.
