PREPARING TO RUN - What Is the Right Race for You? 

Research. Investigate. Explore. Gather information about the possibilities. Find out which positions are paid or unpaid, part-time or full-time, partisan or nonpartisan. Ask questions about yourself, about the district, about your opponents, about the timing of the election.

A political party isn’t just a list of policies in a platform. It’s more than that. A party is as strong as the people who step up and give their time, talent, and treasure to advancing our collective vision.

That’s why building up our bench of leaders is critical to the growth of our movement. One of the most impactful ways you can make a difference is to put your name on the line, literally, and run to serve your community.

Whether it’s at the federal, state, or county levels, or even for nonpartisan city council or school board positions, we have developed tools and trainings to help get your campaign off to a strong start.

If you are interested in running for office at any level please contact our Executive Director Sandy Swan  or our County Chair Angie Cadena at
