SToPP 5K is part of The New Agenda, a voice for all women. The New Agenda was founded in August 2008 when thirty Hillary Clinton supporters from around the country met in New York to sketch out plans for a new women's advocacy group. The attendees were from all walks of life from bankers to professors to community activists. It was the 2008 elections that provided the raison d'être for the new group: to support women in leadership roles, to draw a line in the sand against the sexism and misogyny so much in evidence in 2008, and to build a national organization to advance key goals for women.
