Recorded in September 2020

We know that women are more likely to calculate the costs and barriers of running for office, which can sometimes make the idea of considering a run sound reckless.

In a conversation moderated by She Should Run Political Pipeline Director Jarinete Santos, we spoke with State Representative Amber Mariano and City Commissioner Reina Saco about how they have embraced the unknown and how others can do the same.
