BUILD A BENCH

We need young candidates running for office at all levels, and we need to recruit them, train them and help them win. 

The DNC must: 

  1. Sponsor DNC-led candidate training programs to help win local and state races, creating diverse qualified candidates ready to run for higher office. 
     
  2. Measure our long-term performance in recruiting diverse candidates to run, and in helping recruited and trained candidates win.  
     
  3. Have prominent surrogates engaging young audiences everywhere – from college or high school speeches, to viral videos – promoting public service and encouraging them to run for office.
