–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#RunAsYouAre–VoteRunLead.org:

WHO:  

VoteRunLead.org
is a non-partisan non-profit training powerhouse, founded by Erin
Vilardi
, formerly of The White House Project, to leverage
technology and training programs to accelerate the number of women
in civic and political leadership. Since the November 2016
election, VoteRunLead
has seen an unprecedented number of women signing up to be trained
to run for office. In fact, in the past several months alone,
VoteRunLead has trained more than 6,500 women.

WHAT:  

VoteRunLead.org
will be holding three training sessions in the Minneapolis/St.
Paul area on April 27 and April 29, 2017. The events include a
private session with women involved with the Target Women’s
Business Council and two public events — a VoteRunLead “Run As You

WHY:  

More women today than ever before are throwing their hat into the
political arena and while this may be a new endeavor to many
women, VoteRunLead.org

Paul area is a great example of women being successful in their
quest for political office with the recent election win by Ilhan
Omar, the nation’s first Somali-born legislature and a VoteRunLead.org
alumna.
