Young Women Run 2022: We Break Barriers

It's conference season! IGNITE is thrilled to announce the return of our national conference series, Young Women Run 2022: We Break Barriers.

We're convening in cities across America - in person - to empower you to flex your political power. Young Women Run includes political skills training, policy discussions, roundtable lunch discussions with elected women, and keynote addresses from prominent political leaders.

Select conferences include an IGNITE the Capitol Advocacy Day, which includes training in advocacy and the legislative process. You’ll learn how, when, and where you can step into the policymaking process and champion causes impacting you and your community.

We hope to see YOU at a 2022 conference!

Fund a scholarship

Donate to our Young Women Run Scholarship Fund

In 2022, as we come back together, hundreds of young women will apply for scholarships to participate in our Young Women Run conference series. By making a gift today, you are giving these young women the tools, resources, and hands-on training they need to accelerate their political careers. At our conferences, young women learn how to activate voters and launch campaigns and careers in public service. They meet with elected leaders, participate in legislative advocacy, and build a peer network of politically ambitious young women from around the United States. Thank you.
