How to Become A: Legislator


Watch Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, who represents the 9th Congressional District of New York in the US House of Representatives. She works to develop federal legislation at the national level across the US to make life better for families and help them to achieve their dreams. The most rewarding part of her work is seeing the positive impact that it has on people’s lives. Yvette says that girls should run for public office because leadership has traditionally been male-dominated, and we need more women in those positions.
