What an incredible year it has been for first-time candidates. Of the 23 Democratic women joining the House of Representatives in January, 19 have never held elected office -- and they're ready to take Congress by storm. And dozens of young people will take their seats on city councils, school boards, and more, due in part to the help they received from one of our proud Onward Together partners: Run for Something.
Today, on National Run for Office Day, Run for Something is celebrating these victories by recruiting an entirely new class of young first-time candidates for office. If you're a young progressive, I hope you'll sign up to learn more -- because politics could use a few more big-hearted members of this team.
Running for office is one of the most powerful ways that you can work with the people in your community to come up with real, meaningful solutions to the problems we all face. It's also one of the most rewarding things you'll ever do. Take it from me.
If you are ready to run for office or are interested in learning more about what it takes to run, please go to www.RunforOfficeDay.com and get started. The team at Run for Something will walk you through the process:
