Description

She the People kicks off a national conversation with the She the People Summit on September 20, 2018. We are highlighting the nation’s most exciting progressive women of color leaders who are on the ballot, championing movements, and driving winning political strategy. At the Summit, we will have 500 women of color from 25 states, including elected officials and candidates in Congressional, statewide, mayoral, and district attorney races, movement leaders, and top political strategists. We are committed to strong representation from our under-25, low-income, immigrant, LGBTQ, and Muslim communities on stage and in the audience. She the People brings together partner organizations that are led by or center women and girls of color.

Partial Speaker List Includes:

  • Sayu Bhojwani, Founder & President, New American Leaders
  • State Representative Crisanta Duran, Colorado District 5; Speaker of the House
  • Kimberly Ellis, Founder, Unbought and Unbossed
  • Alicia Garza, Principal, Black Futures Lab; Strategy & Partnership Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance; Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter

This Summit is taking place on the eve of the midterm elections at a time when our country is looking for signs of hope and courageous leadership. We have witnessed since 2016 a surge of women of color both rising in politics and entering politics. The Summit will be an unprecedented convening of women of color who are changing our national and local politics. From the stage, participants will learn about the political power of women of color as a voting bloc, and will hear stories of the challenges and triumphs of what it takes for women of color to succeed in politics. They will also hear from the very best strategists about how women of color are leading new approaches to win in the mid-terms and beyond.
