A six-week program to learn how to tell your story, navigate attacks, and win elections.

City Guardians

Passionate about solving SF's problems but don't know how to get elected?

No political experience? No problem.

If you can run things, we can teach you how to win elections

We need an army of leaders working together to fix SF's problems.

One of them could be YOU -- or someone you know.

Autumn & Siva were complete novices when they ran the school board recall.

They learned politics... and won in a landslide.

You can do it too.

If you're passionate about solving a problem in your community, and if you want to track outcomes to make sure that problem gets solved...

...then we strongly encourage you to apply.

We are accepting candidates across the entire political spectrum to this free, nonpartisan program.

The 6-week program is designed to simulate a campaign.Autumn Looijen and Gaybraham Lincoln (David Thompson) at outer sunset farmers' market
Class will be offered on six Saturdays from 10am-4pm.

March 4, 11, 18, 25
April 1, 8
Demo Day TBD (2 hours)

Class size is small for personal attention from Autumn & Siva.

Meet current and past city leaders like Scott Wiener, Matt Gonzalez, and Joel Engardio.

Hands-on practice crafting your story, staying on message, and handling attacks with skill.

Optional enrichment opportunities on Wednesday evenings with special guests.

There will be significant work between sessions to give you the feel of a real campaign. Autumn & Siva will be available for office hours.

Applications are due Feb 23. We encourage you to apply early.
