Winning as an Intersectional Candidate Training


Pramila Jayapal is not your average member of Congress. She's an immigrant. She's a woman of color. She's not an attorney -- she's an activist. And because of her diverse, intersectional background, she's not afraid to tackle big issues in new ways and bring a fresh perspective to the conversations taking place in Washington, D.C.

If we want our representatives to be more reflective of our communities, we must start by helping more intersectional candidates run for office. That's where you come in!

If you've ever thought about running for office, now's the time. We want to teach you how to do it -- and you'll get to learn directly from Pramila herself. Join us at our first-ever candidate training on September 16!

Winning as an Intersectional Candidate Training
Led by Congresswoman Jayapal and Community Leaders

Date: Saturday, September 16
Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

At this training, Pramila and community leaders will share their experiences through intersectional lenses: Racial justice, workers' rights, environmental justice and more.
