VoteRunLead.org is a non-partisan non-profit training powerhouse, founded by Erin Vilardi, formerly of The White House Project, to leverage technology and training programs to accelerate the number of women in civic and political leadership. Since the November 2016 election, VoteRunLead has seen an unprecedented number of women signing up to be trained to run for office. In fact, in the past several months alone, VoteRunLead has trained more than 6,500 women.
VoteRunLead.org will be holding three training sessions in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area on April 27 and April 29, 2017. The events include a private session with women involved with the Target Women’s Business Council and two public events — a VoteRunLead “Run As You Are” workshop in Minneapolis and a “Minnesota Plate to Politics” session in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

More women today than ever before are throwing their hat into the political arena and while this may be a new endeavor to many women, VoteRunLead.org s helping them learn how to run for office. The Minneapolis/St. Paul area is a great example of women being successful in their quest for political office with the recent election win by Ilhan Omar, the nation’s first Somali-born legislature and a VoteRunLead.org alumna.
