    Resolve to Resist: A Civic Engagement Series (Session 2)

    DOES YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION INCLUDE MAKING CHANGE?

    Start by attending Resolve to Resist: a two-part series to encourage women and others who don’t see themselves represented in the political arena to take the lead. Hear how others have done it: how they started and what their journeys looked like. Learn about culturally and gender-specific resources and leadership programs available to help you GET READY to RUN! Both sessions are informative and interactive. So let’s get started! Because we all have to be the change to see the change.

    SESSION 2: RUNNING THE RACE Get the run-down on elected positions, running for office, and how you can become involved. Panelists will address what it means to be a candidate, how to get started, and how to bring attention to the needs and issues too often overlooked in our political system.

    This session will cover:

    • Elected positions & how to get started in running for office
    • What does it mean to be a candidate for office?
    • How to bring attention to overlooked needs and issues

    • Sami Alloy, Oregon Women’s Campaign School
    • Becca Uherbelau, Metro Senior Communications Manager
