A Charity You Should Get Involved With: She Should Run
I'm ending this great week of talking about volunteer opportunities with the one that I believe the strongest about: She Should Run.
About She Should Run
According to its website, She Should Run is "a national network changing culture to inspire more women and girls to run for office." Whether this means talking to girls about leadership or asking more women to run for office, the goal of She Should Run is to let girls and women everywhere know they are capable of holding office and we need them in politics. And, since less than 20% of legislature is currently made up of women -- I think the work She Should Run is doing is pretty damn important.
How to Get Involved
Ask a woman you know to run for office. Join the She Should Run campaign. If you're in the D.C. area, join the She Should Run frontrunners! And if you have a niece, baby sister, baby cousin or know any young girls -- please, please, raise them to believe they can do anything men can do, including hold office. We need them!
