VoteRunLead will be presenting#RunAsYouAre 2020 on Friday, August 03, 2018 at 4:00pm for you to map your personal plan to run for local and state office in 2020—and win. Geared towards first-time female candidates, #RunAsYouAre is tailored for diverse women who have the passion to run, but don’t want to lose themselves in the process of political leadership. With 519,000 local and state offices, we specialize in training women to run—just as they are—by building political capital, identifying what office to run for, mapping networks and identifying your why. Your voice is valuable, and your vision is needed.
