Lone Star Parity Project is pleased to announce our partnership with VoteRunLead, a national program that trains women to run for local and state office and win. Lone Star Parity Project has partnered with VoteRunLead because of their initiative to train women for public office, preparing to create parity in government - one candidate at a time.
What is VoteRunLead?
VoteRunLead’s unique campaign and leadership trainings are practical, actionable, nonpartisan and individualized. Their recent survey, found in Marie Claire magazine, reported that 56% of the women polled said they don’t think as many women run for office as men because no one has ever encouraged them to run. Well, VRL wants to change that narrative by training women to run for office regardless of their political experience or “permission” to do so. They believe women have the talents to achieve their political ambition and to be unapologetic about it. These award-winning trainings are designed to encourage women to “RUN AS YOU ARE” and win. Their cutting-edge online tools put campaign resources and live political experts within reach. We have nearly 60 training resources available on our website for their partners and VoteRunLead alum to use and share.
What is VoteRunLead’s story?
With more than 26,000 women trained to run for office, VoteRunLead is the largest and most diverse campaign and leadership program in the country. Their mission is to educate diverse women to unleash their independent political power, seek public office and transform American democracy. They work to equip women with the right know-how, trainings and how-to’s to help them enter politics with a purpose. They believe that by empowering women to run as they are, they will build a campaign based on their own passion, their own ideas and their own values.
