Featured Training: Movement Against Police Violence in America: A National Community Forum
America is a country that holds the largest criminal justice system in the world, a billion-dollar private industry that has facilitated catastrophic disparities disproportionately targeting and profiting off of Black and Brown bodies. Join us as we create a national agenda with organizers across the country with a plan to collectively mobilize against police violence in America
Featured Training: Summer Leadership Academy
Your community needs YOU - it’s time that you match your passions to your leadership journey. Wherever you are, you come face to face with challenges every day as a community member. With this first-hand experience, you’re probably more qualified than you realize to champion change. It’s time to join the movement and IGNITE your pathway to leadership.
2022-2023 Dr. Anne Moses Fellowship
Every year IGNITE recruits a cohort of diverse and passionate women in communities across America and provides them with resources, training, and networks to flex their political power and mobilize women on their campuses and in their communities to become civically engaged. We are currently accepting applications for 24 of our Fellowship sites. Application deadlines vary by site.
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
