Crazy Rich Asians is the number one movie at the box office. Camila Cabello just won Video of the Year at the VMAs. And Insecure is back for a third season of riveting television.

Meanwhile, in Washington, the White House looks like Where’s Waldo for a non-white person.

NAL held our Ready to Win training this past weekend in D.C., bringing some color to the nation’s capital. Our participants came from diverse backgrounds and had different reasons for running, but they all shared a desire to serve their communities.

These New American Fellows and future Campaign Leaders learned how to fundraise, seek endorsements, and brand themselves on social media. They even got to complete an intense campaign simulation to truly understand what it takes to run for office and win.

Now this amazing group of NALpistas is not only ready to lead, but ready to win, and we look forward to seeing them become the next Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib.
