She Should Run, a non-partisan group, has launched a campaign to get women to fill half the 500,000 elected positions in the U.S. by 2030, Axios is reporting.
The campaign is called "250kBy2030." The group helps recruit and train women to run for public office. Presently, women hold less than 25 percent of elected offices, according to Axios.
"We really felt like it was important to make it clear that we're in it for the long haul," Erin Loos Cutraro, founder and CEO of She Should Run, told Axios. "We know it's not going to happen overnight."
And the group's website invites women to run for office.
"Join us to get 250,000 women running for elected office by 2030," it urges. "Whether you're running for school board or state senate, you're a part of a national movement to change the face of government.
"At She Should Run we're working to get 250,000 women to run for office by 2030 because equal representation in politics shouldn't wait 100 years."
Cutraro told Axios more than 15,000 women have joined the She Should Run community since the election. About 11,000 of them are planning to run for office, the website reported.
