Hey there — Pride Month is just around the corner 


So in partnership with our friends at the LGBTQ+ Victory Fund, we’re hosting a tailored version of our So You Want to Run for Office training focused on LGBTQIA+ candidates.

Join trainer Judson Scanlon for this event on Thursday, June 1, who brings experience running as a candidate themselves. Whether you are starting out or maybe just considering the possibility, this training will give you a broad overview of this decision.

LGBTQIA+ rights are under attack across the country, notably against folks in the transgender and nonbinary communities.

And much of that vitriol begins at the state, county, and municipal level.

One of the best ways to effectuate change locally is to run for office. Running for office – beyond winning or losing – can bring community members together, raise awareness for key issues, and mobilize support for future cycles. And that can start with you.

Regardless of your motivations, we invite you to join us on Thursday, June 1 at 1pm ET as we focus on LGBTQIA+ candidates running for office for the first time.

I hope you’ll join us – and seriously consider running. Even if this event isn’t the right fit for you at this time, feel free to pass along the opportunity to someone you think would benefit from it!
