IGNITE is a movement of young women who are ready and eager to become the next generation of political leaders.
Featured Program: IGNITE Fellowship
Now accepting applications for the 2021/2022 cohort
IGNITE Fellows are politically active local leaders who organize their communities to flex their political power. Every year IGNITE recruits a cohort of passionate women in communities across America and provides them with resources, training, and networks to mobilize young women to become politically engaged. Fellows serve as ambassadors for IGNITE’s mission and help us spread a national message: it is time for young women to own their political power.
Featured Training: Run Now
Registration open for Fall 2021
IGNITE’s 5-week cohort-based virtual training for young women will expedite your path to political leadership. You will learn every aspect of running a campaign - articulating your personal call to service, fundraising, endorsements, field, and opportunities to meet with elected women and campaign consultants who will guide you with your bids.
What IGNITE Women Are Saying
“My generation has different life experiences than those in power. I ran for Georgia General Assembly to bring new approaches and ideas to the process.” Audrey Maloof, IGNITE Alumna
“I advocated for House Bill 1053 because of the inequality caused by the current tax. I was surprised that so few legislators and staffers were aware of it. Going to Olympia, WA made me realize I could influence lawmakers to put women’s rights on the agenda.” Janani Iyer, IGNITE College Chapter Leader at the University of Washington
“Why not me? Why not now? I bring a young and unique perspective and have lived through the experiences of the students in my district. I'm capable, ready, and willing to serve my community. It’s personal and it’s urgent." Karla Garcia, IGNITE Alumna, Dallas ISD District 4 Trustee
“It’s amazing to see so many women running for office or helping other women run. This is the impact that IGNITE has on women: your sister, your mother, your daughter, your granddaughter—it teaches them to stand up, represent, and make a difference for themselves and others.” Logan Nevonen, IGNITE Alumna, Communications Director, Dallas County Republican Party
