Camp Congress for Teen Girls in Los Angeles
February 22: Camp Congress for Girls Pasadena 2020 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 17 to politics. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for an office, create her own campaign with a platform, campaign finance plan, and a political ad. All campers will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President.
