A portion of all ATR sales are donated to national organizations working to improve the lives of real people. We feature a different national organization each month, read about previous organizations here.
May's nonprofit of the month is She Should Run.
51% of the American population is female, and yet women make up only 20% of elected officials. She Should Run is a nonpartisan 501(c)3 that has been working since 2011 to correct this imbalance and change the culture around women running for office.
By providing invaluable resources and support through their Incubator program SSR has assisted more than 21,000 women seeking office since the 2016 election. Their goal is to get 250,000 women to run for the 500,000+ elected offices by the year 2030. We can all do our part to make this goal a reality!
"When more women run :
- More women lead: As more and more She Should Run graduates become elected officials, they become role models to girls and young women, help change the culture of women in politics, and amplify the need for gender parity in office.
- More voices will be heard and more challenges met: By encouraging more women to run, She Should Run is building a more effective and representative government that can meet the challenges of the 21st century."

ATR is incredibly excited to feature SSR as our Nonprofit of the Month. Partisan politics aside, we believe we can all do more to Elect More Women.
