Season 5 of Grace and Frankie hit Netflix over the holiday weekend (finally!) and, as is wont to happen after a binge session of the comedy, it left viewers with one question: “How do I get more of June Diane Raphael?” The actress (and writer/producer) stole the hearts of the show’s fans with her deadpan delivery and penchant for saying exactly what we all wish we were thinking — and now, there actually is a way to get more June Diane Raphael.

That’s because she wrote a book, but it’s not quite what one might think. Raphael, along with her co-author Kate Black, are debuting Represent: The Woman’s Guide to Running for Office and Changing the Worldset to release on Sept. 3, 2019. After the past few election cycles, Raphael and Black realized that they could help empower women to run at every level of office (read: This isn’t just for the next Kamala Harris). The book uses a 23-point checklist and hits everything from why women should run for office in the first place to fundraising to social media to filing your candidacy in the first place. (And yes, there’s even advice about what to wear on the campaign trail.)

Raphael has carved out a second career as an activist when she’s not in front of the camera — in the turmoil following the 2016 election she launched The Big Hundred, an initiative to do 100 good deeds in the first 100 days of the administration, and this fall she launched The Jane Club, a co-working space that caters to working mothers.

Black is a former chief of staff at EMILY’s List, an organization that helps get female candidates elected, and is currently a policy advisor at the FCC.
