January 2022

Dear ReflectUS Community,

Happy New Year!

The month of January is often marked by time reflecting on the past year and determining goals for the months to come. In addition to your personal reflections, I want to encourage you to look at the achievements we’ve accomplished together in the past year.

In 2021 we...

  • Grew our ReflectUS Coalition to over 200,000 women, spanning geographies, backgrounds and ideologies.
  • Launched the ReflectUS National Working Group, the first of its kind where over 20 national movement leaders have come together to determine strategies and goals for long-term movement building.
  • Created the ReflectUS State Network, where we quarterly convene over 300 state-based and local organizations across the country to share best practices and leverage collective capacity. 
  • Expanded our Innovation Hubs to include Missouri, Virginia and Washington, working closely with our state partners and community leaders to devise innovative strategies that accelerate political leadership by women at the state and county level.
  • Empowered women in Texas through the first “It Begins Here” Fellowship cohort, providing them with mentorship, knowledge, and support to help launch their political leadership journeys.
  • Supported our ReflectUS Coalition members who are at the forefront of our democracy, helping women run, win, and serve in political offices across the country.
I hope that reflecting on our milestones has inspired you to make a personal resolution to join our movement’s impact this upcoming year.

This year promises to be an exciting year for women's political representation. Let's stand together and remember our tagline as the New Year settles in - “More Women in Office = A Stronger Democracy”!



Tiffany Gardner, ReflectUS CEO


You're invited to the Women's Public Leadership Network's Inaugural National Summit on February 4-5, 2022 at The Westin New Orleans.

This first-of-its-kind summit is for women seeking to be public leaders at all levels and those that support their journeys.  Network with other women who want to make a difference in their communities from those seeking office, those currently in office, and those wanting to help. WPLN will also provide programming for spouses or families who may be undertaking this campaign alongside their partner or mother, including childcare!
