Women in Politics National Network Launch Event
Friday, June 28, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 PM (EDT)
Join us on June 28, 2013 for the national launch of the Women in Politics Network! So what is this network and what is it all about?
Women in Politics Network is a nonpartisan grassroots movement with the mission of engaging all Women in Politics. The Women in Politics Network encourages women to get off the sidelines of politics to become engaged, educated and empowered. Every woman in America is affected by legislation enacted at every level of government. Therefore, every woman should be an active, engaged participant in the local, state and national political discourse. A woman can chose to be involved politically in many ways but at a minimum, every woman must be aware of those political issues that impact her life daily.
The Women in Politics Network at the local level first engages and educates a woman on the issues dominating politics in her community. Through the cooperative community created by each network, a woman can take action to influence legislation that affects her life and the lives of her family members. Women in Politics Network members are educated through advocacy, political and career trainings hosted by the Political Institute for Women. Members are encouraged to become engaged voters, advocates, candidates for political office or professionals working in the political sector. The local chapter also serves as a recruitment and support network for women running for office in each community.
