In May, we celebrate Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. We commemorate the contributions that generations of AAPI have made to U.S. history and culture. Recent events, including the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, are a reminder of the importance of learning about and celebrating the historical contributions of the AAPI community, not just for one month but throughout the year.
Since 2016, the ReflectUS Coalition has reached hundreds of thousands of women in the U.S. across geographic, racial and ideological lines. Our work encompasses leadership development, training, networking and institutional change. The Coalition is accelerating representation and has been able to scale our impact. We created a heat map to show our national impact and highlight where our Coalition members are working most deeply. Check it out!
For anyone that attended a ReflectUS event in 2021 please take our 10-minute survey. We would love to hear about your experience with our online offerings and your political and civic interests. Your input will help us to continue providing relevant training and informational opportunities that encourage and support women to become more politically and civically involved. Thank you for your feedback and valuable input.

Announcing WPLN's New Digital Training Curriculum
Even though we saw incredible gains in 2020, women remain underrepresented in political leadership. Specifically, the data supports a clear lack of center- and right-leaning women in public office. In Congress alone, three out of every four women lean left. Yet, 68% of women identify their political ideology as conservative or moderate.
Each course features expert advice from practitioners on the ground in political and grassroots campaigns, legislative and executive offices, government affairs, nonprofits, and candidates. Our first three courses are designed to help women explore the decision to run for public office, learn about campaign law and legal requirements, and understand the basics of fundraising.
We're committed to empowering women from all backgrounds to have influence and ownership in policy decisions at every level of government. A functioning democracy thrives on input from voices that represent its people.
The ReflectUS Summer Internship program is open for applications. Apply your passion to not only increase the number of women in office but also achieve equal representation in our political leadership.
ReflectUS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition working to increase the number of women in office and achieve equal representation across the racial, ideological, ethnic, and geographic spectrum in the United States. Learn More
