LBJ School of Public Affairs opens applications for LBJ Women's Campaign School

Jan. 29, 2021

In 2021, more women than ever before are serving in elected office, and Americans saw the first woman and first woman of color sworn in as vice president. However, women still make up less than 30% of elected officials nationwide, and only 26% of the state legislature in Texas. That's why the LBJ Women's Campaign School recently opened applications for its eight-month virtual program, which trains women to run for elected office or become campaign managers. The program takes place April – November.
