A workshop for those who are not completely repulsed by the idea.

Have you ever felt like your elected officials are out of touch with your values and the needs of their constituents?  Well its true, elected officials are more conservative than the voters they represent. Its not that surprising though, of the hundreds of progressive activists attending this conference, hardly any will ever even consider a run for public office. In this workshop, presenters will work one on one and in small groups with participants to discuss the process, benefits, drawbacks and costs of mounting a serious campaign for elected office. Participants will also learn about resources and trainings available to first time candidates.
