For nearly 10 years, AIT's civic education programs have been inspiring women to speak up, vote, be heard, change laws, be leaders and run for office. But they’re just the tip of the iceberg. In our research we found that less than half of American women believe that participating in politics gives people like them a say in what happens in government. Our mission is to change that! When women attend the AIT Community Leadership Program they leave ready and inspired to make change in their communities. 80% say they are inspired to get more involved in their community, and 50% will go on to take a new civic action.
We can continue to strengthen American democracy through women’s civic participation but we need your help. Every $25 donated will help us reach and support another women through our Community Leadership Program – this includes providing free food, childcare, translation, and transportation in every community where we operate.
