Mission & Vision

Run for Office Waterloo Region (Run4OfficeWR) was started in 2020 by representatives from the African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities in the Region of Waterloo, who wished to see greater representation by persons of colour in political offices. Run4OfficeWR intends to increase the number of persons who identify as Black who run for political office, in Waterloo Region. Regardless of political affiliation, level of government, political experience, we wish to lower the barrier to entry for those persons who can effectively represent not only Blacks, but the entire community, for the good of all.
