Over the past 16 years, Susannah Wellford has founded two organizations designed to raise the political voice of young women in America.
In spring 2007, Susannah founded @runningstart to inspire young women and girls to political leadership. Running Start has trained over 10,000 young women and girls to lead in politics from all around the country. Running Start furthers the work begun by the Women Under Forty Political Action Committee (WUFPAC), which Susannah cofounded in 1999 and led for five years. WUFPAC is a national women’s group dedicated to electing young women to political office. A nonpartisan organization, WUFPAC is the only political action committee in the United States devoted to helping young women of all parties run for elected office.
After receiving her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1998, she worked for several years at Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPherson and Hand, lobbying for state and local governments, foreign governments, corporate entities and trade associations before Congress and the Executive Branch.
Prior to law school, Susannah worked for @hillaryclinton's Health Care Task Force in the Clinton White House. She is also a former Legislative Assistant for Senator Wyche Fowler from Georgia.
