What is RUN WY?
RUN WY Candidate Training is a joint effort by the Equality State Policy Center, Wyoming Women Rise, and Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance to train candidates across Wyoming on the skills necessary to not only run, but win elected office in our state.
No matter if you’re running for School Board, City Council, or the Legislature, we want to provide all Wyomingites with the education and experience to become the next generation of leaders in our communities through this non-partisan candidate training.
Women, young people, people of color, and LGBTQ Wyomingites who do not otherwise have access to a candidate training are highly encouraged to apply for RUN WY.
What will you learn through RUN WY?
Through RUN WY, potential candidates and campaign staff can expect to learn proven and effective strategies on how to engage and mobilize voters, curate a winning campaign message, use digital media to its fullest potential, and build a robust fundraising apparatus to support their campaign.
When is the training?
Cheyenne Training – April 14th (All day)
Jackson Training – April 16th & 17th (Evenings)
