Patricia, After Donald Trump was elected a year ago, women weren't just devastated. THEY WERE INFURIATED. Many were so fed up they decided to run for office THEMSELVES. Here's how this community has spent the last 365 days helping them: NOVEMBER 2016: In the first 4 weeks after Trump's win, 1,000 women told us they want to run for office (the same amount that reached out to us in the 2 years prior). JANUARY 22, 2017: The day after the Women's March on Washington, we trained 500 women to run for office. FEBRUARY 6: We officially launched Run to Win, our nationwide recruitment and training program for first-time candidates, AND tripled our staff who help get these women ready to run. THROUGHOUT 2017: We travelled to 24 cities to teach women the basics of getting ready to run: Phoenix, AZ: 3/18/2017 Milwaukee, WI: 4/22/2017 Washington, DC: 4/30/2017 Chicago, IL: 6/24/2017 Seattle, WA: 7/8/2017 Richmond, VA: 7/24/2017 Lansing, MI: 7/29/2017 Atlanta, GA: 8/12/2017 Columbus, OH: 8/19/2017 Pittsburgh, PA: 8/26/2017 Des Moines, IA: 8/27/2017 Denver, CO: 9/10/2017 Albuquerque, NM: 9/16/2017 Minneapolis, MN: 9/23/2017 Detroit, MI: 10/1/2017 San Francisco, CA: 10/14/2017 Los Angeles, CA: 10/15/2017 Portland, ME: 10/21/2017 Las Vegas, NV: 10/21/2017 New York, NY: 10/28/2017 Raleigh, NC: 11/11/2017 Miami, FL: 11/18/2017 Manchester, NH: 12/2/2017 Dallas, TX: 12/9/2017 JULY 12: We conducted an in-depth training for our declared candidates in Virginia.
