The national organization “Ignite” meets every Thursday in room 278 from 3-4 p.m. 

Ignite is an organization that encourages young women to get involved in the political process. Members also focus on the political power of young women and provide a space that centers on their experiences. 

“I’m excited to see the energy that the students will bring,” U.S History Teacher Zobaria Shah said. 

It is an all girls organization and also open to non-binary people and transwomen. The idea of this organization was created by a student. They had their first meeting last Thursday and students were very excited about it. 

“I was so excited about the first meeting I even took a video,”  creator of the Ignite Organization Aubre Powell said. 

People were thrilled to hear about the new organization. It gave students a platform to explore political topics that center around women’s issues. 

“ As we grow up, we have more problems we have to face,” Powell said.
