Women Can Run!

ABOUT WOMEN CAN RUN!

Women Can Run! is a non-partisan campaign training program of Oasis that aims to increase the number of women running for elected leadership. We believe that women bring important and diverse perspectives to the table and should be adequately represented at all levels of elected leadership.
