Guest Speaker, Audrey L. Salgado will address the launch of The 2014 Project Alabama large-scale public education campaign to raise awareness about the lack of women in elected office and the unique opportunities of the 2014 election.

The 2014 Project Alabama is assembling a team of advocates, allies, and volunteers to recruit and train women in 2013 to run and win in 2014. Women interested in taking the next step toward candidacy are connected to leadership institutes, think tanks, campaign training programs and fundraising networks designed to help them succeed in 2014.
