Run for Office, Presented by Feminist Campaign School

With Nadine Nakagawa, Trudi Goels and Hollyhock Leadership Institute

October 31 - November 4, 2021

With the 2022 British Columbia municipal elections approaching, The Feminist Campaign School has been working with people from historical excluded communities who want to run and lead values-driven campaigns.

Our communities deserve better leadership, and The Feminist Campaign School is working to help candidates be prepared to deliver that leadership. They have partnered with Hollyhock Leadership Institute to provide a 3 day/4 night program for candidates and campaign managers who want to run campaigns and lead with their values.

With two cohorts completed and an additional cohort starting in September, The Feminist Campaign School is working with leaders in every area of the province.

This program includes a combination of thoughtful contemplation about systems and self, hands on work to build a winnable strategy, time to synthesize learnings, rest (so helpful pre-campaign!), and time to connect with other participants. This program is for both first-time candidates and incumbents.

Because of the nature of this work and the possibility of experiencing harm, The Feminist Campaign School has created a path to safety, with tools and supports to address harm including having an Ombudsperson available to all attendees.
