On November 8th, 2016, Donald Trump was elected president. You’re alarmed and angered by his and his administration’s assaults on women’s rights, civil rights, and reproductive rights. You’re worried about jobs and opportunities for yourself and your family.
So you’ve laced up your shoes and marched. You’ve fired off emails and posts. And you’ve got your congressional leaders on speed dial. You’re making your voice heard because Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress do not speak for you and this is not normal.
What’s next? We need you to Run to Win.
Run to Win
EMILY’s List is launching Run to Win, a national recruitment campaign aimed at recruiting and helping thousands of pro-choice Democratic women around the country run for office and win.
We've been working to recruit and elect women to office for over 30 years because we know that women bring unique and diverse experiences that matter for policies that will impact our families. Forty percent of the candidates EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color and more young women are stepping up to run. Diverse representation at every level of government means we’ll all have a voice.
That’s where YOU come in. We are asking you to step up and run for office, especially at the state and local level. And men, you can help by encouraging your wife, daughter, colleague, and friends to run too.
You don’t have to have years of political experience, a Ph.D. in the issues that matter to you, or a law degree (although those women are welcome too). You know when policies work for you and your family and when they don’t. We think it’s long overdue that you have a seat at the decision-making table.
EMILY’s List is doubling our forces across the country to train and recruit new candidates. We can help give you the tools to be a strong and strategic candidate. In-person trainings, webinars, and other resources will introduce you to the basic tools needed to run and win.
