Running With My Girls (Post Production)
If we want the future to be female, we need women to rise up and take their place. This film will be the blueprint for how we can effectively make change by building power and investing in our communities in meaningful ways.
Inclusion StatementMy project is specifically focused on women of color running for political office and the challenges that are unique to candidates from traditionally under represented groups. Running With My Girls will inspire more women to run, it's the blue print for women in politics.
About The Project
Running With My Girls is a film project that began in response to my curiosity about people who run for office. People asked me to consider running and I wanted to see how political campaigns function. I also wanted to showcase women who are doing their part for change. This film project is part of the larger narrative of women rising up and building power.

This has been an amazing, enlightening, and at times heartbreaking journey. We were there for all of it and we could not have done it without the support of our community. The footage is beautiful, full of truth, inspiration and I cannot wait to bring this story to you. Now that we have wrapped filming and have entered post-production we realize the monumental task ahead of organizing and editing the massive amounts of footage we have. In order to do the story justice we will need significantly more funding. Make a pledge, join the movement. Thank you.
