Join host Emily Ludolph and special guest Amanda Litman, founder of Run for Something, for Dedicate It, a live show and podcast that zeroes in on the dedication page.
Emily Ludolph’s Dedicate It explores the stories behind the people and experiences that motivate our favorite writers, musicians, and scientists. Each show isolates a single great dedication, holds intimate conversations with the people we admire most about the people they admire most, and hosts an open mic for everyone to make a dedication to someone who got them where they are today.
Tonight’s guest Amanda Litman, former email director for Hillary Clinton and the founder of the political action group Run for Something, will revisit her work campaigning for Barack Obama in 2012 and Clinton in 2016. As a member of Clinton’s campaign, Litman is acknowledged in the dedication in Secretary Clinton’s bestselling autobiography What Happened; Clinton also wrote the introduction to Litman’s 2017 book. Come hear how she’s turned her experience in the national campaign fight into an action guide to running for local office!
Amanda Litman is the co-founder and executive director of Run for Something, a PAC that helps recruit and support young, diverse progressives running for down-ballot office. Previously, she was the email director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, digital director for Charlie Crist’s 2014 Florida gubernatorial campaign, deputy email director for Organizing for Action, and an email writer for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
