Why should we lower the barriers of entry for young candidates?

Young candidates

Short answer: If we don’t, we’re looking at another four years of Trump and another decade of gerrymandering.

Run for Something has endorsed 500 young, progressive candidates and recruited 18,000 more. Our goal is to build the bench and increase turnout by running great candidates – locally and everywhere. Running community-focused campaigns in districts we don’t usually contest increases turnout for EVERYONE on the ballot. See Virginia 2017.

There are 100,000 uncontested races each cycle. If a Democrat ran in each and knocked on 1,000 doors, that’s about 100 million quality voter contacts. That’s how we win.
