Please join us for an exciting webinar

Tuesday, March 27th

1:00 - 2:00 pm ET

Women make up more than half the population yet holdonly 17% of the U.S. Congressional seats, less than a quarter of state legislative seatsandonly six governorships. Of those, women of color constitute only 4.5% of the total members of Congress and 3.5% of state legislators. This under-representation has a profound impact on policymaking.

The 2012 Project, a national, non-partisan campaign to increase the number of women in Congress and state legislatures by leveraging the once-in-a-decade opportunities of 2012, aims to change this. In collaboration with The Association for Women in Communications and the co-sponsors listed here, The 2012 Project will explain why it is essential for women to throw their hats in the ring in 2012. This webinar will highlight the experiences and insights of two 2012 Project faculty members who will share what it takes to be a candidate, the difference women make in government, and why it is important for more women (like you!) to run. Filing deadlines have not yet passed in many states, so it's not too late!
