Advocacy: Workshop by Running Start's founder Susannah Wellford
- America House (map)
Over the past 16 years, Susannah Wellford has founded two organizations designed to raise the political voice of young women in America.
In spring 2007, Ms. Wellford founded Running Start to inspire young women and girls to political leadership. Running Start furthers the work begun by the Women Under Forty Political Action Committee (WUFPAC), which Susannah cofounded in 1999 and led for the first five years. WUFPAC is a national women’s group dedicated to electing young women to political office. A nonpartisan organization, WUFPAC is the only political action committee in the United States devoted to helping young women of all parties run for elected office.
This workshop discusses messaging, fundraising and networking as necessary tools to advocate for a cause you care about.
Discussion will include:
- How to persuade someone to part with something they hold dear because they believe in you and your cause;
- Where and how to network;
- How to condense your message into a soundbite.
The event will be in English with simultaneous translation into Ukrainian.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
