RUN FOR OFFICE
Now more than ever, we need our best advocates in elected office. Women Winning helps pro-choice women run for office and win — up and down the ballot!
Through our robust formal training series, one-on-one candidate coaching, and boots-on-the-ground support, Women Winning provides the tools needed for pro-choice women to run strong campaigns and win elections! To break down barriers that have kept women and underrepresented voices out of the political process, Women Winning’s programming and services are free-of-charge for all pro-choice women in Minnesota.
Women Winning’s Candidate & Campaign Development Training Series provides critical tools for pro-choice women candidates, campaign staff, and the next generation of political leaders across Minnesota. Our trainings help candidates and their teams build needed skills and offer strategic resources to successfully campaign for office — at each stage of a campaign. Topics covered can include: Getting Started: Announcing your candidacy; Campaign Finance and Fundraising; Communications; Team Structure and Data Management; Voter Contact: Field and Organizing; Constituent Outreach and Voter Education.
Women Winning also invests in the next generation of political strategists, volunteers, and candidates through our Political Leaders of Tomorrow (PLOT) Training Program. PLOT serves as an entry point for energized, pro-choice Minnesotans to gain valuable training and development, as well as hands-on campaign experience.
Through one-on-one coaching, tailored to the specific circumstances and dynamics of a given race, Women Winning’s expert Political Directors offer strategic advice and mentorship to pro-choice women running for all levels of office. From building campaign plans and reviewing budgets, to creating actionable checklists and navigating shifting political landscapes, Women Winning is with a candidate on every step on the campaign trail.
Women Winning’s strategic endorsement program focuses on competitive races for pro-choice women candidates with the goal of electing a truly representative government, protecting and advancing choice, and creating a more equitable, just Minnesota. Women Winning is often a candidate’s first endorsement, acting as a powerful validator and ushering in additional support. Women Winning’s endorsement can also include financial resources, grassroots support, and strategic campaign promotion. For more information, please visit Women Winning’s endorsement page.
