WILMINGTON, MA - Run for Something (RFS), the groundbreaking organization that recruits and supports strong voices in the next generation of progressive leadership, has endorsed Erika Johnson (D-Wilmington) is the 19th Middlesex State Representative race.

"RFS endorses candidates on two major criteria: heart and hustle. That's what defines viability to us," said Ross Morales Rocketto, RFS co founder. "These are candidates who are going to work hard to run grassroots, community-led campaigns. We are a critical time in history and the momentum these candidates generate will have a lasting impact for years to come."

Amanda Litman and Ross Morales Rocketto launched Run for Something on January 20, 2017 with a simple premise: help young diverse progressives to run for down-ballot races in order to build a bench for the future. RFS aims to lower the barriers to entry for these candidates by helping them with seed money, organization building, and access to trainings needed to be successful. So far, about 18,000 young people from across the country have signed up as candidates and gained access to RFS resources.
