Kate Childs Graham - Why I Run: 35 Progressive Candidates Who Are Changing Politics — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Saturday, March 16, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

The last elections saw a striking increase in the number of first-time candidates for office, as well as more women, LGBTQ people, and people of color. In this collection of essays, thirty-five recent candidates for office, including Stacey Abrams, Deb Haaland, Jason Kander, Andrea Jenkins, and Michelle Lujan Grisham speak out about what moved them to run, what they learned in the process, and what they hope to accomplish. Graham, a political speechwriter who wrote for several key figures at the 2016 Democratic Convention and served as communications director for U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, has compiled a fresh, realistic, and inspiring group portrait of today’s most innovative and determined politicians.
