Last month, we learned about City Council and what that job entails. This month, we're going to go up one more level--the County level--and learn about County Commissioners. County Comissioners usually serve on a board like the City Council. They're not always called C...

About Us

The Future Looks Like Us is a project with the vision of helping women, people of color, LGBTQIA, immigrants, and other marginalized people get involved in politics. We all have a voice that needs to be heard, and it's being drowned out and interrupted by the old, white male majority. Let this be a resource to get informed, involved, and empowered.
