The Everytown for Gun Safety Victory Fund is launching a program to recruit and train volunteers and gun violence survivors to run for office and work on campaigns.
The program, dubbed Demand a Seat, plans to train at least 200 grassroots volunteers to run for elected office in the 2021-2022 cycle. The initiative will invest $3 million in training through 2024.
The program will kick off this fall.
Everytown said the program will provide participants with educational training on how to “build and run winning campaigns as a gun safety candidate.”
