Description

From the email marketing director of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the co-founder of Run for Something comes an essential and inspiring guide that encourages and educates young progressives to run for local office, complete with contributions from elected officials and political operatives. You've been depressed since the night of November 8, 2016. You wore black to work the next morning. You berated yourself for your complacency during the Obama years. You ranted on Twitter. You deleted Twitter. You sent emails to your friends saying, 2How can we get more involved?3 You listened to Pod Save America. You knit-ted a pussyhat. You showed up to the Women's March on Washington. You protested Donald Trump's executive orders. You called your congressman. You called other people's congressmen. You set up monthly donations to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. You reactivated Twitter (begrudgingly). Here's what you do next: Run for something. To be specific: Run for local office and become the change you want to see in the world. Forget about Con-gress. Forget about the Senate. Focus on the offices that get the real sh*t done: state legislatures, city councils, school boards, and mayors. It doesn't matter if you're not a white man over sixty with an Ivy League law degree. (In fact, it's better if you're not!) It doesn't matter if you don't understand the first thing about running for office, or never even imagined you would. That's what this book is for. Amanda Litman, experienced in hard-fought state and national election campaigns, is here to give you guid-ance as well as wisdom and insight from elected officials and political operatives she interviewed for this book. There are half a million elected officials in the United States. Why can't you be one of them?
