2020 Recap Video

"This program confirmed what I was starting to believe. SHE READY!"

- 2020 participant

“When I was a freshman at Howard University, I was 17 years old and trying to figure out, ‘What am I going to do on this incredible campus?’ [Running Start] facilitator Tasha Cole was the first person to tell me I should run for office. I had that experience ... and took it very seriously. And just at 17 years old I decided to run for office in Washington, DC, and became the youngest person ever elected in DC.”

Allyson Carpenter
former Howard University Student Association President

93% of participants felt confident in their ability to run for office!
