Americans aren’t happy with their government. Many despair that it may be broken beyond repair. That the ideals of the Founding Fathers lie trampled beneath vested interest, venal self promotion and entrenched politics. The disillusion caused by this is causing deep fault lines to appear across the country, nowhere better exemplified than in the 2016 presidential race. It means people are turned off politics. Many don’t see the point of voting – and even fewer see the potential to surmount the barriers to running for office. 


Formed by a small group of young politically savvy people, Run For America’s vision is to create a lever of power that can fundamentally change American politics.

RFA will achieve this by actively enabling outstanding people, drawn from communities across the land, to run for Congress. Independently-minded people who can truly represent Americans, and who can work in the interests of the country as a whole.
