September 08, 2021
How can running for office be more accessible for working parents? Sarah Hague, political director at Vote Mama PAC has got the 411 on a solution that tackles one of the many critical hurdles parents face. Eyeing the need for a more diverse and important set of voices at the table (hello, young working parents), Vote Mama takes aim at changing the campaign finance game. Specifically, the two-pronged organization, which includes not just a PAC, but also a foundation, is lobbying for state finance rules to allow for campaign dollars to be used to pay for childcare. Sound cool yet complicated? Don’t worry, Sarah helps to break it all down, answering the how/what/when/why’s of it all.
