Run NOW: Candidate Training
June 8, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Nearly 55 years ago, NOW was founded on the “radical” idea that women should have the same rights, privileges, and protections as men. On Wednesday we came together to celebrate as feminist activists to officially launch our RUN NOW training program. Watch our launch event, here. Thank you to everyone who joined us! And thank you to our special guests for sharing your experiences and for your support of this effort:
- A’shanti Gholar, President, Emerge America
- Elyssa Feder, Training Director, EMILY’s List
- Delegate Hala Ayala, Candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor
- Representative Regina Lewis-Ward, Georgia House District 109, GeorgiaNOW Member
- Hilary Levey Friedman, Rhode Island NOW Chapter President and candidate for Rhode Island Assembly
- Dr. John Erickson, Advisory Board, NOW and West Hollywood City Council member
- Dr. Nina Ahmad, Interim Pennsylvania NOW Chapter President and former candidate for Pennsylvania Auditor General
RUN NOW is a unique program that was inspired by our members and specifically developed for our members to help prepare them to assume positions of political power as candidates and professional campaigners. We are so honored to be partnering with the country’s industry experts, like Emerge and EMILY’S List who will equip NOW members with the resources, skills, and insights needed to successfully campaign in national, state, and local elections.
