"Parity for Women and Minorities is overdue and evident, given the lack of vision by the current administration. Women, it's time to step up! Enroll in the Parity Politics™ campaign training program so you can be educated to Run for Public Office!"

I truly feel this class was such a blessing, the timing was just right as I had been contemplating running for office as of recent and desiring to serve my community on a larger scale. This was such a great investment in myself I am walking away with the tools to run for office, to be a more effective leader and the belief in myself that I can take risks. I feel so empowered through this class and the group of woman I have had the privilege of sharing this experience with. I did not know what to expect I had no preconceived notions but I must say with each class, with each speaker the class became more and more captivating. The entire course was constructed in such a thoughtful and strategic way. I can walk away from this class knowing the key people I need to run a successful campaign, some of whom I will certainly call on and recruit in the near future; I now know the budgetary requirements necessary as well as the best way to build my network of support. I look forward to hearing more about these incredible women. Thank you to all involved. The small investment I made cannot compare to the true value of this class.
