How we’re going to do this, in FOUR QUICk bullet points
1 We’re going to shout from the rooftops about running for office. Constantly. We won’t shut up about it. We’ll talk to reporters. We’ll talk to friends, strangers, the Starbucks barista -- anyone. We’ll run online ads about it. We’ll be annoying. (You'll love it.)
2 We’ll talk to every single person who expresses interest in running. Maybe over email, or gchat, or on the phone, or (gasp) in real life. This will take some time – but if this is what it takes to find new candidates, this is what we’ll do.
3 We’ll connect people to training organizations. Places like Wellstone, EMILY’s List, Latino Victory Project, National Democratic Training Committee, She Should Run, Emerge, Higher Heights, and more are already off to the races with incredible conferences and curriculum. We’ll help feed people into these programs.
4 For some of those candidates, we’ll take our support to the next level: $$$ and staff. We’ll raise funds, donate to campaigns directly through state-level PACs, and help these folks hire professional staff who can keep the momentum going.
