1. GET INVOLVED:  Training to Run for School Boards—Progressive Women!

The EMILY's List Run for School Board training series is a four-week virtual training initiative, starting February 2nd, geared toward those who are thinking about running for school board. The series will feature weekly assignments, virtual training, networking discussions, and an opportunity to meet 1-on-1 with a member of the EMILY's List team.

By the end of the series, you will only be a few steps from being ready to launch your campaign!

This series is for first-time candidates and those who have previously run for different offices. We encourage everyone who has a passion for education and the school board to run for office.

The deadline to sign up is Jan. 30, 2022 at 11:59 pm EST. 

Emily’s List: “We ignite change by getting Democratic pro-choice women elected to office.”
