Run For Office

In 2018, 314 Action Fund recruited and elected a historic number of scientists, engineers, and STEM professionals to Congress, thanks to more than 2 million grassroots supporters in every part of the country.

Now, we’re preparing for the challenge of the 2020 cycle — and we need scientists and STEM professionals like you to run for elected office.

  • Voters not only trust STEM professionals to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, they are more trusted than any other profession to handle the greatest issues facing the U.S. right now.
  • Two-thirds of voters say it is very important for elected officials to have an understanding of science as the nation confronts this pandemic.

Our goals are ambitious. We’re going all out to raise triple what we brought in during 2018 to invest in races up and down the ballot this year. We’re working to triple our national network of active supporters.

At the heart of all our efforts are dedicated STEM professionals who want to make a difference. Whether it’s running for Congress, state legislature, county council, or local school board, we must build our bench by electing more scientists in 2020.

Running for office means making a commitment. There’s no guarantee of victory. The race will be draining and tough. The good news is 314 Action will be standing with you all the way.
