The Fall Cohort of IgniteLA kicked off this past Monday, 9/24 with 5 concurrent meetings happening Citywide in the West Valley, East Valley, West LA, DTLA, and SouthLA.
IgniteLA is a non-partisan program whose mission is to empower every young woman interested in public service with the political and practical skills she needs to be a successful civic leader.
First session highlights include an overview of civics and NC 101, with discussions on policy and advocacy.
By the end of this program, these young women will be ready to be a part of the movement toward gender parity with equal numbers of women in office across all political parties and levels of government. Many will run for their Neighborhood Council Boards and Committees in the 2019 Elections!
IgniteLA’s Fall Cohort is off to a great start. With over 100 participants from all over the City, our eager, motivated, bright young women are empowered and ready to get to work in their communities.
