IGNITE is a non-partisan women's political empowerment non-profit organization whose goal is to be the bridge to gender parity in politics by building “Political Power in Every Young Woman.”

Women represent half the US population but only serve in 22% of public offices and are drastically under-represented in leadership roles. The transition from high school to college is precisely when women’s political ambition freezes. 

IGNITE seeks to change this by (1) creating a network of women who support each other in their ambitions for civic and political leadership, (2) through confidence and skills building, (3) in-depth policy workshops and political leadership training. IGNITE National provides our chapter with an elected officials and leaders network, as well as endless opportunities to get involved in the political process. 

Our chapter hosts bi-weekly meetings to discuss relevant policy issues, learn from dynamic elected officials, and develop leadership skills. We offer leadership opportunities for strong-willed students to spearhead our efforts of civic and political engagement on campus. Club Board Members are invited to sit on the prestigious Northern California College Council with IGNITE campus leaders from Berkeley, Stanford, and many other universities.
