Monday Motivation / Confession – #GoLead2015

We have a confession to make. Monday Motivations are typically reserved for highlighting one woman who is blazing a trail, making a difference, or owning her power. Unfortunately for this week, we are having a really hard time identifying one.

So, we decided to go ahead and celebrate over 110 who took an enormous step by becoming graduates of National Go Lead 2015.

National Go Lead was this past weekend, and these last three days have been a whirlwind for the entire VoteRunLead team. There were over a dozen workshops and presentations about fundraising, voter registration, how to run for office, building power, fundraising, local leadership opportunities, communications, civic technology, and many, many more. Networks were expanded, connections were made, and lasting, fast-friendships were formed. And although there is no way we can accurately explain the uplifting, powerful, and truly life-changing #GoLead2015 was, we still wanted to share the story the best we could.
 
We compiled a small portion of the hundreds Tweets, Instagram posts, and Facebook mentions in to a slide show. We’ll write a complete wrap up in the coming days, but for now, join us in celebrating these courageous women!
