So you’re thinking about how to connect young people interested in running for office with the resources and community they need to win. What’s your first step?
For Amanda Litman, a veteran of the Obama campaign, the first step was to put up a website looking for people interested in running for local office. What the response was greater than she could have ever imagined, she and a friend recruited volunteers and got to work helping thousands of young candidates navigate how to file, how to run a campaign, and how to win.
