In a number of fairly recent posts I have been urging new faces to get involved in party politics. Well the other shoe in that equation is to run for elected office at the local and state level to help make the changes that you want to see. But that is a daunting task for those who aren’t quite sure how it all works. So if you have any interest, here is how you find out how to do it:
Wisconsin Progress is the premier campaign training organization in Wisconsin. Over the past five years, we’ve trained hundreds of candidates, volunteers, and local elected officials on how to run for office and on how to be more effective in their roles. From Superior to Racine, the support and feedback for our trainings has been great!
Now, more than ever, local elections are the best way to affect change in your community, and we want to give you the tools to run an effective campaign that will allow you to be the change you want to see in the world!

And for those of you not inclined to run for office but want to support new candidates consider this request from Wisconsin Progress:
P.S. We in-kind our trainings to candidates, which means candidates pay nothing to attend our trainings. But to keep these trainings free of cost, we need support from people like you. CLICK HERE to donate to our campaign training program!
