What is Run for Something Action Fund?
Run for Something Action Fund (RFS AF) is a 501(c)4 that supports millennial and gen-z involvement in local government through outreach, education, and research. RFS AF is committed to building the next generation of civic-minded, passionate, voters and ensuring that young people are engaged and informed about the democratic process.
Why do we think this project is important?
RFS AF’s work includes a three-year program to recruit and support thousands of local leaders to participate in election administration to safeguard American democracy. They educate communities about what election officials do, inspire young people to see themselves as public servants and as key actors in the preservation of our democracy, and empower pro-democracy citizens to believe that they are good enough to participate.
