Jumpstarting GenZ into Politics: Running for Elected Office
April 15, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
Have you ever thought about running for public office?
According to the Pew Research Center, approximately 1 in 10 voters in the upcoming election are Gen Z. With more and more Gen Z voters joining the electorate, how can young people get involved in government beyond voting?
Join the Bob Graham Center Student Fellows and Gators Vote in the Pugh Hall Ocora for this timely discussion about running for elected office. You’ll learn what goes into planning and executing a political campaign. We’ll also talk about the historical and structural barriers to running for office.
We’ll be joined by Mr. Aaron Klein, director of outreach from our local Supervisor of Elections office; Danielle Hawk, former candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives and chair of the campaign committee for the Florida Democratic Party; and Raemi Eagle-Glenn, candidate for the Florida House of Representatives and state committeewoman for Alachua Republicans.
This program is free and open to the public
