Mobilizing And Diversifying Elections (also known as Missouri M.A.D.E.) is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that identifies, recruits and trains Missouri women to run for public office.
Identify, recruit and train Missouri women to run for public office at local, state and federal levels.
Missouri M.A.D.E. envisions a state and nation where women--especially Black, trans, LGBTQ+, poor, rural and other marginalized women--are equally represented in elected office in local, state and federal levels of government.
