Alumni News: May 2018

I'm super energized by this political moment, and I hope you are too! That's why this summer I'm channeling my energy into making sure our voices are heard.

I'm super energized by this political moment, and I hope you are too! That's why this summer I'm channeling my energy into making sure our voices are heard.

Would you volunteer with me and other alumni across the country for IGNITE’s #VoteTwice voter registration campaign? Our summer goal is for IGNITE alumni to register tens of thousands of new voters before the November election -- your participation is critical.

IGNITE alumni are running for office, working on campaigns, showing up at marches and organizing demonstrations. Spring 2018 is going on the books as one of the most productive in our lifetime. Let's keep up the momentum! Sign up for #VoteTwice activities in your part of the country. 

All my best,

Whitney Thomas
