"The girls who participated in the program over the past couple of years have taken the 4 A's and put it in practice with everything they do. Kudos to the program."

"I was impressed by the perceptive and mature questions that I heard from students. Most importantly, many vocalized an appreciation for the value of local government leadership as a critical stepping stone to policy making. Local government leaders should be moving on to create and drive the policies that govern us. I am tremendously impressed with what 1st Amendment- 1st Vote achieves. Having never considered running for office until my adulthood, I only wish there were a similar program for all women - at any age."

“The creators of First Amendment First Vote are targeting young people with a game-changing strategy. They plan to rewrite history before it happens, and are inviting you to get involved…
By the time students finish the two-day session, they have engaged in roundtable discussions and learned key skills that will benefit them in all career choices. They leave feeling empowered to make a difference. Indeed, they will!”
