Girl Scout Network Campfire Chats: Run For It: How to Run For Local Office
Join Girl Scout Network and Citi Foundation for a Campfire Chat live virtual event panel discussion on running for local office. Even if you’ve never thought about governing, you’ll get guidelines on the do’s and don’ts for advocating for your community and making a difference in your neighbors’ lives. We will discuss how more women running for local office benefits local economies — as well as the world — and enjoy an inspiring discussion that will empower women with the tools, language, and perspective to run for local elected office. Adults and high school girls (Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors) are all welcome to join us for this special live virtual event! Unable to attend live? Not to worry! Register now and you'll be able to view the playback when it is available.
