Amy Mercado

I have been a part of Ruth’s List both as a member and a candidate since its inception.  Ruth’s List is a phenomenal organization which identifies and trains strong and qualified  woman candidate to not only run for office, but to succeed in office. I am thankful for the work they do and look forward to our continued relationship!

Ruth's List was an invaluable resource for me. Madalyn and her team trained me extensively on how to truly execute an effective campaign in such a short time. I can't thank them enough for their hands on support and being a KEY component in our victory in 2016!


We offer three trainings focusing on candidates in different stages of running for office:

Ruth’s List Florida Action produces the popular You Should Run regional trainings. These half-day seminars are designed for leaders who are considering the possibility of running for office.

Media Trainings

Ruth’s List Florida Action has partnered with EMILY’s List and the Florida Democratic Party for this training where Candidates learn how to talk about the important issues impacting Florida.

Staff Training

A highly experiential workshop for progressive pro-choice men and women campaign staffers with tools to use right away to help lead winning efforts with Ruth’s List Florida Action leaders.
