Call to action: Join us for #IGNITEtheCapitol!
February 2 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Use your voice to advocate for legislation that protects women’s rights and maximizes voter participation! IGNITE invites you to flex your political power and join us for IGNITE the Capitol.
IGNITE’s 2021 legislative advocacy season is going virtual to keep you and our community healthy. Just because we can’t visit state capitols across America doesn’t mean the work stops.
What: Crash course in legislative advocacy followed by digital advocacy
When: February 2, 2021 (Session schedule coming soon!)
Where: Online with IGNITE
Who: College women, young professionals, and high school students
Join us for a virtual IGNITE the Capitol on ClickMeeting starting at 9am PST/12pm EST, where you’ll become an expert in digital advocacy and learn to use your political power in new ways. You’ll learn:
- the basics of why it is critical their voice is heard,
- how to be an effective advocate, and
- the ins and outs of their local and states’ lawmaking process.
At IGNITE the Capitol we will be advocating for two bills:
- The CROWN Act aims to make hair discrimination illegal in schools and workplaces.
- The John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2020 aims to restore, repair, and strengthen the 1965 Voting Rights Act to protect voting rights for all.
