Onward Together!Last week, we saw an incredible slate of Democratic candidates win local and statewide elections — including those who helped turn both chambers of the Virginia state legislature blue for the first time in a decade. But while we’ve made strides to take back seats like these over the last few years, we’re still behind.

Today, on National Run for Office Day, one Onward Together partner has a simple solution: Recruit an entirely new class of young, progressive first-time candidates to run for seats on city councils, school boards, state legislatures, and more.

Running for office is one of the most powerful ways that you can work with the people in your community to come up with real, meaningful solutions to the problems we all face. It’s also one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do — I should know. And when more Democrats run, we all win. In just three years, Run for Something has elected 297 people across 45 states, and supported thousands of candidates whose turnout efforts boosted voter participation up and down the ballot.

If you’re ready to run for office or are interested in learning more about what it takes to run, please go to www.RunforOfficeDay.com and get started. The team at Run for Something will walk you through the process:

Over and over again, this team has proven that the right candidate for office does not have to look a certain way or come from a certain zip code. Instead, what makes a leader is a passion for solving the problems that face our country and our communities, and a willingness to listen. We saw that earlier this year, when the most diverse freshman class yet was sworn into the House of Representatives — something that would have been unimaginable even a few decades ago.

It may not ever be easy. But our country was founded on the promise that it would change — that our union would have to be made more perfect.

The National Democratic Training Committee believes that change starts by giving every Democrat the tools to run for office. They work hand in hand with two of our incredible partner organizations, Emerge America and Run for Something, to offer online campaign trainings on everything from fundraising to field programs — entirely for free.

I’m so proud that Onward Together has been able to support the National Democratic Training Committee. Their work is critical to electing Democrats in thousands of offices across the country now and for years to come. Today, I hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about how their training program works — and perhaps think about running for office yourself!

It’s your turn! Here is an email from Hillary today.

What an incredible year it has been for first-time candidates. Of the 23 Democratic women joining the House of Representatives in January, 19 have never held elected office — and they’re ready to take Congress by storm. And dozens of young people will take their seats on city councils, school boards, and more, due in part to the help they received from one of our proud Onward Together partners: Run for Something.

Today, on National Run for Office Day, Run for Something is celebrating these victories by recruiting an entirely new class of young first-time candidates for office. If you’re a young progressive, I hope you’ll sign up to learn more — because politics could use a few more big-hearted members of this team.

Running for office is one of the most powerful ways that you can work with the people in your community to come up with real, meaningful solutions to the problems we all face. It’s also one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do. Take it from me.
