what we do

our mission

Missouri M.A.D.E.: Mobilizing And Diversifying Elections identifies, recruits and trains Missouri women to run for public office.

OUr vision

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.

how we recruit and train women

  • Host events (currently only in a virtual format, via Facebook Live or Zoom) such as:​​

    • Leadership Lunches with current candidates​

    • Discussions with women in office

    • Identity exploration sessions, such as LGBTQ+ leadership

  • Offer training and resources to future candidates through our leadership summits and empowerment database

  • Publish a monthly newsletter highlighting the ongoing work of women leaders and legislators in Missouri

  • Partner with community and women's empowerment organizations across Missouri and the country to pool resources for women candidates

*As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we cannot endorse candidates or directly engage in campaign activities. We can, however, encourage women to run for office and provide them with the resources and training to do so.*

what our community is saying

I feel so inspired and empowered by your programming. This is a moment of such uncertainty so it’s wonderful to see others fighting for a better world. 

Very thankful to see all the support for running for office as a woman.

Connecting with women from across the country who also want to work in public service is so inspiring and makes my dream of running for office feel validated.
