Lone Star Parity Project is pleased to announce our newest addition to the Affiliate Network: She Votes.
What is She Votes?
She Votes is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes habits of lifelong voting for women of all backgrounds. She Votes’ primary purpose is voter education for women via online sources, primarily through social media platforms. She Votes emphasizes the importance of voting for women of all political parties, socioeconomic backgrounds, and religious affiliations.
A major effort of She Votes is their ambassadorship program. So far, She Votes has 25 ambassadors nationwide and 2 internationally. These ambassadors act as liaisons between She Votes and their respective communities to spread information to women voters. Ambassadors also make a pledge to register a certain amount of previously unregistered women to vote.
Within the next year, She Votes hopes to establish a fellowship program which will sponsor young women in pursuing otherwise unpaid government internship opportunities.
What is She Votes’ story?
She Votes was established by founder Shannon Lynch in early 2018. With a background in working on campaigns and running for office herself, Shannon saw a shortage of voter education resources on social media that were targeted specifically at women. Shortly thereafter, She Votes was born. Since then, She Votes has grown into a community of thousands of women across the US and world committed to making their voices heard through the power of the vote.
