VRL Live Web Series: Latinas in Leadership
Latinas are the most underrepresented group in political leadership. It’s time to represent! In this exciting series, Latinas and allies will have the opportunity to join women from around the nation to discover how they, too, can find a voice and step into the political arena. So join us this month online, and then come out to our National Go Run conference in November.
Let’s do this!
This five-part online series will include webinars focused on the latest research, skills training and election analysis, and conversations with today’s leading Latinas. The one-hour online clinics begin this Monday, October 20th and culminate in VoteRunLead’s National Go Run conference in Minnesota, November 21-23.
Everyone is welcome. All webinars start at 2pm EST and are free.
