Have you thought about running for office?

I know we’re all making phone calls and marching in protest and attending meetings—and it’s making a difference! But I’m wondering how many of us have considered running for office?

I’m genuinely curious if anyone here is debating getting into politics? There are so many impassioned and eloquent voices on GT and I’d love to know if anyone has plans to run or reasons they never will or if they’re considering it.

So few women are in politics and maybe that’s part of the problem. The other day, I was compiling a list of all of my representatives, from the Governor down to our state seats. Every single name was that of a white man. And I live in a blue state.
