    Ep. 14: What Comes Next

    Ep. 14: What Comes Next

    With Election Day 2018 in the rearview mirror, what happens next? The results were historic. How do our newly elected officials channel that momentum as they enter the House? For women who won, the path ahead is pretty clear. For women who lost, it’s less so. And for the volunteers who stepped up to help on all these exciting campaigns, it’s perhaps the least clear of all the best ways to stay involved. This week, Host Jenny Kaplan seeks answers to all of the above. She finds many of them at VoteRunLead's Women & Power 2018 National Town Hall, where winners and losers from across the country -- and on both sides of the aisle -- share thoughts and stories. Experts talk about logistical next steps for candidates and how movements can keep volunteer momentum.

    VoteRunLead is a non-partisan organization that trains women to run for office. Learn more here: https://voterunlead.org/

    Special thanks to VoteRunLead for allowing us to record the town hall, to Moran Audio for the tunes and to Ben Broer for audio editing expertise!
