League of Our Own Celebrates Successful Kick-off Event

LANSING, MI, September 28, 2017 – League of Our Own is celebrating a successful launch this past weekend on Mackinac Island.

The League hosted an event at the Pink Pony on Mackinac Island to introduce the League of Our Own to those attending the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference on Saturday, September 23, 2017. The event was hosted in partnership with Michigan Excellence in Public Service (MEPSS).

“There are many organizations that recruit women to run for office. Where there seems to be a gap, are organizations that provide training to women who want to run for office. League of Our Own is here to fill that gap by calling on a statewide network of talent to mentor and develop women who have an interest in being leaders in their community,” said Kristin Fair, the League’s Training and Mentoring Manager. “There are women leaders in every community across the state and the nation, yet women continue to be under-represented at every level of government. League of Our Own wants to challenge them to get involved, and empower them to be leaders on local school boards and city councils, in the state house and senate, in Congress and beyond.”
