Are you an immigrant woman/woman of color who has ever considered running for office? Ready to Rise is a special FREE training designed to prepare you to run successful campaigns and lead your communities. Attendees will be trained by outstanding women of color and hear from incredible speakers like:

New York City Council Member Julissa Ferraras
Arizona State Representative Isela Blanc
Maryland School Board Member Raheela Ahmed
San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim
Celinda Lake, President, Lake Research Partners

Learn how to build your base, tell your story, identify the right seat and deal with xenophobia and sexism on the campaign trail.

We are well aware that women, especially women of color and immigrant women, face more difficulties on the campaign trail. It’s challenging if you have an accent or a “different” name.

We are looking for immigrant women who want to make a change and just need the push to get started. So we have one question for you: Are YOU Ready to Rise?

APPLY to NALP’s free candidate training today. Space is limited and the deadline is Thursday, May 25!


If you’re new to NALP, consider this an introduction to Ready to Lead, our main candidate training program. If you’ve already been to Ready to Lead, consider this a refresher.
