When thousands of women started reaching out after Election Day to tell us they wanted to run for office, we knew we had to make our biggest investment EVER to help them run.
That's why we launched Run to Win, and since then this community has stepped up big time to make sure it's a success.
Here's where your support is going: Since February, we've tripled our state and local staff and doubled our budget for state and local races. We brought on not one or two, but eight regional directors and two finance advisors to counsel the thousands of women who are ready to put their name on the ballot for the first time.
This has only been possible because of the enthusiasm and generosity of the EMILY's List community. Want to see even more? Donate to help continue to grow Run to Win.
It doesn't end there!
Over the last few months, we've also hired a brand-new Run to Win program director, are bringing on new Run to Win digital staff, and we're building out my training team so that we can teach thousands of women the nuts and bolts of running for office. We launched our most extensive training schedule to date in more than 25 cities across the country, AND we'll be doing training webinars for the first time.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of our grassroots community, we've been able to help train hundreds of women so far. But we still have thousands more to go.
Donate now to keep this program growing — together we can help elect more women than ever before:
Thanks and talk to you soon,
