College Magazine’s 50by2050 campaign, an initiative to make Congress 50% women by 2050, partners with IGNITE to give young women the resources they need to get their name on the ballot—and then win. IGNITE’s training program teaches young women about policy and how to enact positive change through the elected office while connecting them with current powerful women leaders.

The 2018 San Francisco Summit will fire you up to start preparing for your first political campaign. Let women who already broke barriers motivate you and help you find out what step you want to take next in your young political career, whether that means running for a school board or councilperson or assisting congresswomen in their day-to-day duties as a communications director. This half-day event will connect you to inspiring women—maybe even your future mentor.

Representative Stacey Abrams will keynote the summit. Abrams, the House Minority Leader and State Representative in the Georgia General Assembly, recently founded the New Georgia Project. The project registered more than 200,000 voters of color between 2014 and 2016. You’ll also hear from Jocelyn Yow, Immigration Specialist/Field Representative for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at the U.S. House of Representatives. Other speakers include Nicole Agbayani, Director of Community Affairs at Office of San Francisco Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu and Fiona Ma, Board Member for District 2 at California Board of Equalization. You’ll even hear from a woman running for political office herself—Eleni Kounalakis, candidate for California Lieutenant Governor.

Two breakout sessions will take place, but attendees get tons of options to choose a workshop that sparks their interest. Workshops cover trending political topics like Prop 64, #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and more. Looking to get a little more hands-on? Head to the workshop “Leveraging Facebook” so your digital footprint matches your political platform. These timely and necessary conversations will help you dominate political convos on and off the microphone.

Aside from the breakout sessions, the winner gets to meet up for coffee with an elected official. Bring a notebook and pen so you can bring her insight to your own campaign. Ask all of your burning questions about internships and mentorships. Maybe she’ll even endorse your work.

Candidate Mia Satya for San Francisco Board of Education, a trailblazing community organizer, policy analyst and social justice educator, rounds out the day with closing remarks.

This must sound like a dream opportunity. Guess what? It’s not just a dream. This day can be yours. Sign up for our giveaway for the political leadership opportunity of a lifetime. Your career in politics depends on it.
