EMILY's List

We ignite change by getting pro-choice
Democratic women elected to office.


Run for Office


Whoever you are. Wherever you have been. You have the opportunity right now to be heard and make a difference. There are state and local political opportunities for pro-choice Democratic women just like you with a drive to serve and the courage to run.

The world of political campaigning can seem a little unruly for someone who hasn’t done it before. But like anything, the more you know, the better the decisions you can make. We run trainings for women ready to wage and win campaigns that put them in office and empower them to drive change.

Since 2001, EMILY’s List has held over 200 trainings for over 9,000 women. Hundreds run every election cycle, and EMILY's List is proud to support many of their campaigns. We endorse only pro-choice Democratic women who we feel we can make it across the finish line with the help of our national community.

For our federal and gubernatorial candidates, we put expert staff to work helping craft the most effective fundraising, political, communications, and digital strategies.

For our state and local candidates, we give you the tools to start a winning campaign and the strategic advice to see it across the finish line.
