PARTY FOR SOMETHING

On May 21 in D.C., we’re holding our second annual Party for Something bash, featuring some of the best the progressive movement has to offer.

We hope you can join us as we celebrate our second annual event, featuring candidates, political leaders and activists from across the county. Best of all: our keynote speaker this year is the always amazing, Stacey Abrams!

Hear from her and more amazing speakers — previous Run for Something alum, current representatives, and maybe even future presidential hopefuls — who are ready to support the next wave of young leaders.

Get excited for free booze, good snacks, some fun games, and that warm-fuzzy-joyous feeling that comes with winning state & local elections across the country.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Stacey Abrams 

Stacey Abrams is an author, serial entrepreneur, nonprofit CEO and political leader. After serving for eleven years in the Georgia House of Representatives, seven as Minority Leader, in 2018, Abrams became the Democratic nominee for Governor of Georgia, when she won more votes than any other Democrat in the state’s history. Abrams was the first black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in the United States. After witnessing the gross mismanagement of the 2018 election by the Secretary of State’s office, Abrams launched Fair Fight to ensure every Georgian has a voice in our election system. Over the course of her career, Abrams has founded multiple organizations devoted to voting rights, training and hiring young people of color, and tackling social issues at both the state and national levels. She is a lifetime member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the 2012 recipient of the John F. Kennedy New Frontier Award, and a current member of the Board of Directors for the Center for American Progress.
