Annie's List: Candidate 101 Training for Women to Run for Office

Are you a woman and have you ever thought about running for an office or leadership position?

Consider getting training as a potential candidate this cycle or in the future. Or please do your part in distributing this widely to make sure we have candidates who are advocates represented to achieve equality for women.

The Candidate 101 Trainings is a great place to begin if you are considering a run for office some day. 
Here is a little more information about the trainings :

The program is tailored for progressive women who are considering a run for elective office at any level. The trainings are full-day, in-depth workshops exploring the building blocks of campaign communication, fundraising, planning, media relations and grassroots activism needed to run a professional, competitive campaign. 

Since the program’s inception in 2006, Annie’s List political staff has trained thousands of women to run for offices up and down the ballot, many of whom have gone on to seek office in the Texas Legislature and at the county level across the state.
