Daughter and Father Camp Congress for Girls Los Angeles 2023 is a leadership program that introduces girls and fathers to the United States political system. Each student will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency with her mother serving as campaign manager. Together, daughter and father will create a political campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad for television. All campers and dads will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Dads will serve as House, Senate and White House aides assisting daughters in their work. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. Looking for more events?
