The vision of She Can Win is to create parity in the political realm. We believe that by providing the necessary resources and trainings that we are not only encouraging more women, but are placing more women in elected seats. We do this in 3 ways:

1. A nonpartisan training program that educates women interested in running for office and holding leadership on political campaigns.

2. Through our Political Action Committee. We invest capital in Women of Color’s political campaigns.

3. Advocating for policies that directly affect women of color. We do this by partnering with nonprofits and elected officials to lobby legislation.
