The LBJ Women's Campaign School trains women to run for office or manage campaigns regardless of political party affiliation. We inspire women to enter the political arena, and empower them with the skills to win. Learn more about our program.

We are proud to announce our third cohort — 65 women leaders representing a wide range of political ideologies, and have plans to run for state representative, judge, city council, school board and Congress, and to become campaign managers.

Thanks to generous grants totaling $87,500 from Texas Woman's University Center of Women in Politics and Public Policy, 50 applicants from Texas are attending our third cohort tuition-free. Our next session begins April 29, 2022.
