🌎 Moms for Liberty is a dumb name
And we're going to beat them, this is how
Hi Shit Givers!
We’ve got a very special edition to share with you today and TLDR; it involves you or someone you think is really, really rad running for your local school board.
Last week, our BEST FRIENDS at Run For Something formally announced their 50 State School Board Strategy, a $10 million program to recruit and support school board candidates in 2024 and 2025 (which can’t be a real year, can it?)
Anyways, here’s the details:
That’s the what.
Here’s the why, from RFS co-founder and two-time INI pod guest Amanda Litman:
Here’s where you come in:
These three things are simultaneously true:
There are more than 80,000 elected school board positions across the country
Elections for approximately 20-25% of them happen each year
More than 60% of school board races go uncontested
Moms for Liberty and 1776 PAC (both of which sound like shitty titles for George Washington fan-fic, btw) have a head start on us, but this shit stops now.
My grandparents would be livid to discover Nazis are back, and especially if they were taking charge of our kids education, so let’s keep Pop and Grammie happy in their graves and get to goddamn work.
Hit the Donate button below to support school board candidates who give a shit everywhere, and/or hit the Volunteer button to campaign for candidates in your area.
As always, thanks for giving a shit.
See you tomorrow,
