About this event

Have you wondered what it’s really like to run for office as a queer person? Bring your burning questions to our first Ask Me Anything! In honor of Pride Month, we’re partnering with LGBTQ Victory Fund to fund to spotlight 3 incredible alumni who will be sharing their first hand experience about running and serving.

Questions will be moderated during a live Q&A, but feel free to submit them ahead of time in your registration. This event is open to anyone but we especially encourage folks who are considering running for office, but unsure about taking that next step.
