Elección Latina

CAWP together with a steering committee of leaders in the Latino/a community, sponsor Elección Latina, a preconference session of the New Jersey Ready to Run® Campaign Training for Women. Elección Latina participants attend a half-day session that targets issues of particular interest to Latinas running for political office.  Elección Latina participants then attend Ready to Run® the next day to learn about the nuts and bolts of working on a campaign.  

Ready to Run® offers a unique opportunity for potential women candidates to hear directly from prominent elected and appointed leaders, campaign consultants, and party officials about how to get Ready to Run®.  Topics covered include fundraising, navigating the political parties, working with the media, and developing a campaign plan.  More details on Ready to Run®.
