A Message from the President

Stephanie Berger,      
WCSYale President

A Message from Patti 
Happy New Year! 

As we begin a New Year, let me first thank all of you for so generously supporting our year end campaign. 

Thanks to all of you, we enter 2017 on a strong foundation, ready to achieve our goal to get more women into the political pipeline by providing exemplary political campaign training.
Special thanks to Erica Carlino, our School Administrator who created our "Will You Take the WCSYale Sisterhood Challenge?" Campaign.  Thanks to her leadership, many of our WCSYale alumna gave this past year like never before. 
"Get Inspired! Get Trained! Get Elected!" is our Clarion Call at the Women's Campaign School at Yale. We are lifted way up by all of you to achieve that goal on behalf of women of our country, of our world.

Love and Heartfelt Gratitude, 
Patricia Russo
Executive Director
