Founded in 2013, She Can Win is a movement that supports, educates, invests in, and empowers Black & brown women who have passion for civic leadership. We are a nonpartisan organization with a mission to promote women in government and civic leadership. The program offers training classes for Black & brown women who aspire to run for public office. Our goal is to increase the presence and influence of women in the political arena. Ran through the nationally recognized 501(c)(3) NSA Education Network, She can Win has been recognized as a program of choice by Women’s Way, and the Women’s Social Innovation Fund.
It is a fact, women are grossly underrepresented in the political industry. On a national scale women make up 17% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 16% of U.S. Senators are women, 16% of the gubernatorial population are women, and 24% of State Legislators are women. She Can Win looks to address these statistics by providing training, and mentorship, and to begin to build a network where women support one another. She Can Win places an emphasis on mentoring, the program will engage women in meeting and making connections with other women, who have held office, are currently in office, and those that have led campaigns.
She Can Win will focuses on the tri-state area where the representation of Black & brown women in politics is also underrepresented. The program will offer 9 courses Courses include, but are not limited to:
