A year from November we will know the results of the 2020 election. What we know today is that young women will determine the results.
Recent research shows that IGNITE alumnae are three times more politically engaged, politically ambitious, and likely to vote than their GenZ peers. Want to make sure young women flex their political power? IGNITE is the answer!
Join IGNITE for a celebratory kickoff of our yearlong effort to activate the next generation of women.

Caitlin Moscatello is the author of See Jane Win: The Inspiring Story of the Women Changing American Politics and a journalist and writer covering gender, reproductive rights, and politics, who has been reporting on the surge of female candidates since it began in early 2017. In recent years, she has been nominated for a National Magazine Award; received a Front Page Award and a Planned Parenthood Media Excellence Award, and has been a United Nations press fellow reporting on women’s health issues. She’s also the founder of Repro, a newsletter about reproductive rights legislation at the state and federal levels.

She lives in Manhattan.
Representative Park Cannon is serving her third term as the youngest member of the Georgia House of Representatives. She is excited to represent Midtown, Downtown, and Southwest Atlanta. At the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Representative Cannon said "We need to trust black women!" and will continue to stand up for LGBTQ and minority visibility in the South. Park serves on the Executive Committee of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, the nation's largest state black caucus as the Chair of the Civil and Human Rights Committee as well as the Co-Chair of Communications. She serves on Insurance and Small Business Development House Committees, City of Atlanta Delegation, Fulton County Delegation, Bi-partisan Future Caucus and is the secretary for the Women’s Caucus.
