Our sister organization, the Lillian's List Action Fund hosted their 2014 Issues Training last week. I want to share my reflections.
Mission: The mission of the Lillian's List Action Fund is to recruit and train progressive women to run for elected office at all levels in North Carolina.
Purpose: The purpose of the issues training is to give candidates and potential candidates the opportunity to learn more about important issues facing our state. Who was there: We had a great group of approximately 40 participants, 12 great presenters, 9 board members, 3 legislators, 3 public school teachers, 3 staff and one intern.
