Interested in running for office, but not sure where to start? This one-day workshop provides hands-on skills training to women in food justice and sustainable agriculture who want to play a critical role in transforming our nation’s food system.

This is a great opportunity for women who are running or planning to run for office to develop their skills, to network with like-minded women, and to be inspired. Women who want to ramp up their advocacy leadership in healthy food and farming or with an interest to help other women run for office are also encouraged to attend.
