WHY I RUN:
35 PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATES
WHO ARE CHANGING POLITICS
ELLIOT BAY BOOK COMPANY
March 11 @ 5:30pm


'This book is exactly the kind of inspiration we need, encapsulating the energy and vision embodied by every progressive candidate who stepped up and ran for office in 2018. They believe in a big-hearted, inclusive America, and their stories are a clarion call to all Americans who believe in their country and in the work it will take to change it for the better.' - Hillary Rodham Clinton

Just weeks before President Trump was inaugurated, President Obama said this: 'If you're disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.' Since then, thousands have taken that rallying cry to heart.

Why I Run: 35 Progressive Candidates Who Are Changing Politics (Abrams Image; March 12, 2019; U.S. $24.99; Hardcover) is a collection of original essays from women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and progressive allies who have recently run for office. Contributors like Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, Oregon Governor Kate Brown and others who share what encouraged them to run, what it takes to win, and what lessons can be learned in the face of a loss. Featuring a foreword from U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth, Why I Run is a powerful testament to the importance of following your principles in a precarious political landscape.

On Monday, March 11 at 5:30pm, The Elliott Bay Book Company will host the launch of Why I Run with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, the first woman elected as Seattle mayor in nearly a century. Alex Rozier, an award-winning reporter from KING5, will moderate a discussion about what inspired her to run and the growing movement of first time candidates, women, people of color, and LGBTQ candidates changing the face of politics. The Elliott Bay Book Company is located at 1521 10th Avenue (between E Pike and E Pine Streets on Seattle's Capitol Hill). This event is free and no tickets are necessary.

Contributors to Why I Run include Stacey Abrams, Amy McGrath, Kwame Raoul, Helen Gym, Ashley Bennett, Zach Wahls, Saira Rao, Barbara Lee, Daniel Hernández Jr., Heather Ward, Sheila Oliver, Debra Haaland, Valerie Hefner, Michelle Lujan Grisham, Jason Kander, Jennifer Carroll Foy, Pramila Jayapal, Alexandra Chandler, Shoshanna Kelly, Kate Brown, Michelle De La Isla, Andrew Gillum, Nelson Araujo, Jenny Durkan, Andrea Jenkins, Karen Caudillo, Tom Perriello, Kevindaryán Luján, Vi Lyles, Dimple Ajmera, Wilmot Collins, Kelsey Waits, Anna V. Eskamani, Mai Khanh Tran, Tyler Titus.
