Over the past decade, a record number of individuals from underrepresented groups have launched political campaigns in the United States. This exhibit highlights a selection of political buttons from 32 of these candidates – women, people of color, Native people, and members of the LGBTQ community – who have sought political office since 2012. These candidates threw their hats in the ring for governorships, Congressional seats, and U.S. president.
