Run For America: electing the best and brightest to U.S. Congress

What if we could fix politics in the US? What if our political system truly tackled our nation’s toughest problems? What if the best and the brightest viewed running for elected office as a desirable form of public service?


Run for America (RFA) is a citizen-powered movement to reimagine politics and reinvigorate government by recruiting, training, and working to elect a new generation of solutions-oriented leaders to U.S. Congress. We seek to spark long term change in the system by first supporting 12 visionary and talented Americans - Democrats, Republicans, and independents - to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016, together. To run for a better government, to run for a brighter future, and to run for us.
