Due to technical difficulties, the first episode of She's Running is a minisode! Emily stuck her mic in the faces of women at a candidate training to find out why they want to run for office.

Taking a little break over the holidays, but don't panic! We'll be back on January 8th!
All-women shortlists, a logical districting system, not bad-mouthing those in your own party, a rule book - if these things sound foreign to you in relation to politics, then you aren't wrong.

Bravery is putting yourself out there, even when the odds are against you. This week Emily chats with Tabitha Isner, a progressive woman running for Congress in deep red Alabama. Every day she hears "you'll never win", but she's not giving up. You know why? Because she's brave.
Happy American Thanksgiving! Emily chats with Brittany Shearer about her run for Norfolk School Board. And don't worry if you're nervous about uncomfortable conversations - Showing Up for Racial Justice has you covered.
