Dearest friends and family,
If you know anything about me, you know that my life has been undoubtedly shaped by strong, capable, and passionate women — some I have the privilege of knowing personally, while others I don’t, though they have blazed the trail for me and countless others nonetheless. As such, advocating for gender equity in all aspects of life is extremely important to me. That’s why I’m participating in WeLead, a nonpartisan training program aimed at closing the gender gap in the political arena, hosted by American University’s Women & Politics Institute. Now in its 15th year, this program has been offered to participants like me at no cost, thanks in part to each class’s fundraising efforts the previous year. Now, it’s our time to pay it forward.
My team, team “Yes She Will,” is raising money to fund the next year of WeLead, and in turn investing in the leaders of tomorrow. In addition to providing us with tremendous and invaluable insight into the art and science of politics from some of the foremost experts in these fields, WeLead is providing us with the lived experience of fundraising for a cause we each truly believe in.
Please join me in my commitment to funding the next wave of women leaders and making the 2020’s the Decade of Women! Thank you for your continued support.
