With more than 60 million Latinos in the United States, our communities continue to be disproportionately underrepresented in federal, state, and local governments. In 2019, we created WeRun to ensure our communities are actively prepared to close this political leadership gap, see themselves in elected positions of leadership, and stay politically engaged. At WeRun we empower, provide the tools, and help young Latinos and communities of color launch their political careers.
The Institute's vision is to increase access in the political space through educational training and a robust hands-on curriculum to equip individuals with advanced opportunities for political leadership. We believe in the power of people and the importance of our identities and experiences when creating public policies and social change. We work towards an inclusive democracy where this country’s leadership represents and helps us nurture the next generation of leaders from our community.
This year’s training will feature prominent leaders, hands-on workshops and an interactive luncheon conversation with Latino elected officials. Lastly, the breakdown of activities includes the ABCs of a political campaign, filing, fundraising, building a field plan, getting endorsements and communications training.
