Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color.
For more information about how to get involved with EMILYs List and run for office, please be sure that you are signed up for our Run to Win program. In 2017, EMILYs List launched Run to Win, a national recruitment and training program, which helps women learn how to run for office and win. The program gives participants the tools to build strong and strategic campaigns through in-person candidate trainings, webinars, and other resources. If you’re interested in running for office now, or considering running for office in the future, sign up for our Run to Win program.
Additionally, feel free to check out the EMILYs List Training Center. The EMILYs List Training Center is a website designed to teach candidates how to run for office and win. EMILYs List supports Democratic pro-choice women and has been training candidates to run for office – and win – offline since 1985 and now we’re bringing our decades of campaign experience online.
In the Training Center, you can expect to learn the important details about running for office from the moment you first think about running all the way to Election Day. We cover topics like fundraising, communications, digital strategy, press and media relations, direct voter contact, and overall campaign management. To learn more, please visit the Training Center.
We have also created a Run to Win Facebook community, where thousands of women from across the country are connecting with each other about running for office and supporting the candidates in their area. Please visit the Run to Win Facebook community to learn more.
