I joined Run Women Run because right now we need more women in office who will protect our reproductive rights.
We know that women are still fighting for equal pay, reproductive justice, and paid family leave.
These issues we fight for will ensure gender equity in the long run. And as a young woman of color, I recognize an even greater need to have diverse women as our elected leaders. Women of color have organized and influenced without a title or organization to fall back on. Our lived experiences make us natural leaders who are willing to be brave and create meaningful change. When women are in the room making decisions, we not only shift the law, we shift the culture.
This is why Run Women Run is important to me and why I am proud to be a board member. As a supporter of RWR I would love to hear from you. How does RWR inspire you? Why do you support women in politics?
Please take the next 3 minutes to answer a few quick questions about your experience with RWR. Your feedback will help guide Run Women Run programming over the next year.
