Why She Ran: A Conversation with Progressive Womxn of Color in Politics

Session Type(s): Panel

Women, particularly women of color, have a hard time finding role models when it comes to running for office. And once we’re in office and elected, governing with integrity becomes that much harder as we’re plagued by challenges that others don’t encounter. Our panel brings together progressive womxn of color who have run for office and lets them talk in depth about what motivated them to run for office, the challenges they encountered in their race, and the intersectionality of many of the challenges encountered by women and POC civic leaders.
