EMILYs List’s Ignite Change Fellowship is an annual nine-week virtual training designed to help community leaders, organizers, and advocates develop their political skills and confidence. The fellowship is designed to develop the next generation of Democratic pro-choice candidates by expanding the leadership of applicants from historically underserved communities, including women of color, LGBTQ+ women and non-binary people, women from rural communities, and women with disabilities.
Ignite Change graduates who said the fellowship helped or strengthened their decision on running for office.
The Fall 2023 Ignite Change Fellowship Application will open in March 2023.
The first fellowship session will be held on Aug. 12, 2023 at 12 p.m. EST on Zoom.
