Resources for Women Seeking Information about Running for Political Office


Volunteer, apply for paid positions, engage. Look for local, state and national opportunities that match your skills and your bliss. For example:

Latino Victory Fund
Gay & Lesbian Victory Institute
New American Leaders Project
Higher Heights for America
Emily’s List

Updated with these:

She Should Run
Oregon Women’s Campaign School
WIN-PAC (the Oregon-focused version of Emily’s List)
Oregon Commission for Women
Democratic Party of Oregon also has a women’s caucus

Many more organizations can be found at:

Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), with links to state and national organizations with resources for women interested in running for political office

And don’t forget the League of Women Voters and other groups educating voters and present and future political leaders, including our children. e.g. our very own Classroom Law Project, which is educating and inspiring the next generation of leaders and voters.
