About Run for Something
Run for Something recruits and supports young progressives running for down-ballot offices in the United States. Since launching in January 2017, we have recruited more than 70,000 potential political candidates, endorsed nearly 1,500 and elected nearly 500 — mostly young women and BIPOC leaders, and 21% LGBTQIA+. Our alumni have meaningfully and intentionally made life better for millions of Americans across the country. We are a high-reaching, hungry team changing the face of politics in America.
