Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in elected office are powerful and pave the way for other underrepresented communities to join the political process. Join us as we discuss running for elected office as a BIPOC individual, how to become a candidate, representation and identity, and hear from several BIPOC candidates and elected officials who will be joining us as panelists. Speakers TBD.
This session will be co-sponsored by New American Leaders (NAL), an organization dedicated to increasing the diversity of our elected officials by recruiting and training candidates of color to run for office and manage campaigns. NAL President, Ghida Dagher, will co-moderate this session.
