She Should Run: Inspiring Women to Run for Office (San Francisco)

DESCRIPTION

Come meet Erin Loos Cutraro, Co-Founder & CEO of She Should Run, a non-profit and non-partisan organization that encourages and inspires women and girls to run for elected office.

Erin founded She Should Run in 2008, on the belief that women of all backgrounds should have an equal shot at elected leadership and that our country will benefit from having a government with the varied perspectives and experiences that women bring to the table. Through the work of She Should Run, over a hundred thousand women from all walks of life have been inspired to consider public office, and thousands of women have completed SSR's online "incubator," which provides tools and training to support women as they pursue a path to elected public service.

Join us to learn more about what you can do to support SSR, or learn how you can take advantage of SSR's resources to explore your own run for office! Donations to SSR are very welcome but not required, and can be made either through the following link:

www.sheshouldrun.org/donate

or by check made payable to She Should Run, in person or mailed to "She Should Run 718 7th Street NW Washington DC 20001."

Hors d'ouevres and drinks will be served. Deepest thanks to DocuSign for hosting at their lovely offices overlooking the Bay Bridge!
