A couple updates from She Should Run
- The link to She Should Run's Tuesday, Dec 6 Post-Election Townhall and rsvp for our livestream: http://www.sheshouldrun.org/our_events
- Erin Loos Cutraro's post about the inspiring increase She Should Run has seen in women stepping up to say they want to run: https://medium.com/@erin_10653/4245-ways-she-should-run-is-changing-the-face-of-government-eda77cb0d6ac#.4f14ko5yv For government to be successful, it can never be about just one name, just one voice, just one woman, or just one party. With over 500,000 elected offices and increasingly complicated challenges in our country, it really can’t be.
- And a fantastic article in Forbes featuring Clare Bresnahan!
P.S. For those of you who interested in strategies to fix the entrenched partisanship in the United States - which makes entry into the political system very difficult for women and candidates of color - here is a good read about the limits of independent redistricting commissions and FairVote's fair representation plan that replaces winner take all single winner districts with a more representative system.
