We need your Help!

Here at First Ask, we focus on community-based candidate recruitment.

You know your community best and we want to follow your lead to find women who would be a great representative but hasn't been asked yet

Join LEAP (Locally-Established Advocate Program) as a Volunteer Advocate to help find women in your area to run for office.

We will train you on how to search for the right person for office, and provide the tools to start those critical conversations with women and to ultimately make the first ask of them to run for office. And then the second. And the third. And however many it takes to show them we think they would make great representatives of their community and empower them to run!

Be a part of this team that will help close the gender gap in representation and build a strong bench of women to continue running for office in the future.
