You are ready to run.
“Where you are right now, you are ready to run.”

January 20, 2017. The date loomed ominously on my calendar for weeks after election night.

That urge to get involved led me to the National Women’s Political Caucus, and I attended my first meeting November 13th. The energy I felt in that meeting was invigorating, and I made a promise to myself that I was going to become more engaged and involved in the coming year.

Not only did Secretary Clinton lose the presidency -- despite winning the popular vote by over 2 million votes --- but we also said goodbye to strong women icons such as Gwen Ifill, Carrie Fisher, and Janet Reno.
