Every wonder about running for elected office and what it would take? Feel a bit intimidated or unprepared? Come learn about the process for running for local or state level office, how to prepare

This discussion is especially designed for folks marginalized by our current political system
- women, low-income, LGBTQ+, folks of color and differently abled individuals -
