Last weekend I attended a couple of events, one on Friday: Pre-conference Women of Color in PA Politics, the other on Saturday: Ready to Run – Campaign Training for Women.
The pre-conference was really amazing and it was really incredible to hear from some amazing women how are making positive changes in our lives.
Here’s a little bit about the cool ladies who were on the panel sharing a little bit about their experiences and some advice they gave:
