About this Event

Campaign to win! IGNITE and New American Leaders are joining forces and coming to Seattle to train the next generation of fierce campaign leaders.

These badass boss ladies will learn the keys to running a successful campaign. During an immersive half-day training, participants will learn how to find a position that fits your skill set and professional goals, figure out what candidate you want to work for, and a host of other essential campaign skills! Boss Ladies will walk away not only feeling empowered, but with a new campaign toolkit that includes fundraising advice, GOTV strategies, field management insight, media tips, and more.

Hear from three local leaders:

  • Maria Beltran, 2018 Campaign Manager for State Rep. Debra Entenman and former organizer with the Washington State Democratic Party
  • Tiffany Mendoza, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Front and Centered and Amplify Interim Political Director
  • Melissa Plummer, Political Director for Congresswoman Suzan Delbene
