Anne Moses, Ph.D.
IGNITE Founder & President
We’re ready to ignite a
movement across America.
Since the 2016 election, IGNITE has experienced
extraordinary, sustained demand for our
programs. We’ve been sprinting to keep up with
young women from across the country who are
eager to become political leaders.
To address this urgency, IGNITE launched an
ambitious $5 million annual effort to boldly
scale our model and train young women in
every state so that today’s IGNITE Fellows,
college chapter leaders and school participants
can become tomorrow’s city councilwomen,
assemblywomen, judges and senators.
Our vision has never been more tenable than
it is today. Across the country and across
party lines, from every state and from every
background, girls and women are speaking
out, stepping up and making the decision to
lead. IGNITE is ready to help turn their political
ambitions into reality.
