IGNITE Community Spotlights
“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
"The Boone Family Foundation was very proud to be one of IGNITE's early partners in Texas. The Board immediately recognized the importance of IGNITE's work to build a pipeline of young women leaders, because the Board knows that when women run for and are elected to office, they bring solutions to the issues that most impact families to the table." Aimee Cunningham, The Boone Family Foundation
"Supporting the substantial growth of IGNITE will have a tremendous ripple effect on young women and their political ambitions. Transformation comes from action, people stepping up to the plate and doing the work – IGNITE young women are doing just that. When I invest my dollars and my time in IGNITE, the return on my investment is substantial." Enid Draluck, Executive Director, Full Circle Living, Inc.
