I'm thrilled to report that the November 08 issue of O, the Oprah Magazine features The White House Project! If you've been reading my blog, you know that I've taken part in two terrific WHP political training events in Michigan this past year (see posts from Sept. 10 & June 6th, 2008).
I love their mission statement:
"The White House Project is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that aims to advance women’s leadership in all communities and sectors—up to the U.S. presidency—by filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women."
I was fortunate to meet some of the talented and energetic women who make up this tremendous effort, including its founder Marie Wilson. I came away from both of my experiences better trained for my work as a writer, speaker and activist on special needs issues. I will most likely take advantage of more such training with this great group in the future. It was worth every second of my valuable time.
Our nation needs sharp, talented, prepared women to be involved in leadership and critical decision making, including at the highest levels, more now than ever before. The White House Project is working hard to make sure that happens.
"Add Women. Change Everything."

Now, vote intelligently on November 4th!
