Our Community

We support and engage women like us. Some are African, Arab, Asian, Black, Indigenous, immigrant and refugee, Latinx, multiracial, Native, Pacific Islander, LGBTQIA and Two Spirit women. We are political leaders.

And, we recognize that we’re living in a dynamic world and welcome opportunities to change our language to be more inclusive as we learn and evolve.

Our Story

After more than two decades of helping recruit and train our community members to run for office, the founders of Women’s Democracy Lab are pooling our lived experiences and reimagining a democracy where solutions are created, tested, and implemented by the people most directly affected by structural barriers and systems of oppression.
