Run Sister Run: Empowering Black Women for Public Office
CAWP, together with a steering committee of African American women leaders, sponsors Run Sister Run: Empowering Black Women for Public Office, a session of Ready to Run® Campaign Training for Women. Run Sister Run participants attend a half-day session that targets issues of particular interest to Black women running for political office. Run Sister Run participants then attend Ready to Run® 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.
