ReflectUS Texas works with community, elected, and appointed leaders throughout Texas to increase the number of women running for, getting elected, and being appointed to political office.
Through our Texas Leadership Council, we organize trainings, networking opportunities, workshops, seminars, and other events aimed at encouraging and supporting women as they seek office. For example, of the 31 cities and towns in Dallas County, more than half have zero or just one woman on their elected city councils.
ReflectUS is eager to be working in Texas to help empower women in pursuit of political leadership roles. If you’re interested in speaking with the Texas Program Manager about your experience as a candidate or any obstacles that might currently be preventing you from running please schedule time to speak with her here. If you’d like for ReflectUS to present to your organization about civic leadership, please contact our Texas Program Manager at [email protected].
ReflectUS aims to help women understand the current state of representation where they live. In doing so, we hope to not only inspire, but also guide women through the process of running for office. Below is a heat map that further details the extreme lack of political leadership by women in Texas. Through our work, we hope to change this.
