When you #RunAsYouAre, you give people hope that no matter what they look like, or where they come from, the government truly belongs to them. True democracy is about leadership full of people who look just like us. We need truly reflective democracy: more women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, immigrants, and young people to run for city council all the way up to the highest office in the land. It’s time for us to step up and run, and I truly believe that if more of us do that every election, we will get closer to true progress. Stand with us and join the #RunAsYouAre2019 team.
