"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Innovation Council

The Eleanor’s Legacy Junior Board, called the Innovation Council, was formed in late 2017 with a small group of committed young women looking to amplify the mission of recruiting, training, and funding pro-choice Democratic women throughout the state of New York.

Our Innovation Council holds quarterly meetings, social events throughout the year, and receives special opportunities free of charge to further their skills, such as workshops with UCB Theatre, and specialized trainings by seasoned professionals from winning local and national campaigns. All members commit to volunteering for women candidates and holding small dollar fundraisers.

If you’re a young professional passionate about New York state and local politics, looking to get involved, learn new skills, and expand your network, join us!
