Are you ready to run?
Are you tired of not seeing yourself or your community represented in elected government? Are you ready to run for office? Are you ready to help a community member run? You aren’t alone and many folks are making the decision to take action in this way. Whether you know it now or not, our democracy needs people like you, now more than ever, to move up and speak out.
Amplify brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer free trainings for people of color, women, LGBTQ people, young people who want to run for office; which is the first step for you to help shape a more reflective and equitable future.
We know that running for office can be intimidating. There are literally THOUSANDS of local offices up for election in 2017, and not all of them require intensive, expensive campaigns you hear about in the news. Your local hospital district, fire protection district, and even water-sewer boards are waiting for your leadership. That’s why we are here: to help, to assist, to support!
This training is free; our work is made possible by community members and organizations across the northwest invested in a progressive future. We're providing a light breakfast and a hearty lunch. We'll be joined by special guests Mayor Marilyn Strickland and Fmr. District Director for Congressman Denny Heck, LaTasha Wortham. So, sign up and join us for your first step in changing how our democracy works! We can't wait to see you on Hilltop!
This training is a partnership between Amplify and Archway Consulting (Tacoma based).
