The mission of womenwinning is to encourage, promote, support, and elect pro-choice women of all political parties to all levels of public office.
womenwinning is building a statewide movement dedicated to increasing pro-choice women’s representation at all levels of office. This movement includes women, men, Democrats, Republicans and everyone in between. Our members know that electing women isn’t just good for women, it’s good for everyone. The mission and scope of womenwinning’s work is bigger than any one race. Over the past 35 years, womenwinning has raised millions of dollars and supported thousands of women candidates.
womenwinning is the only multi-partisan, pro-choice women’s organization with both a State and Federal Political Action Committee (PAC) in the state of Minnesota. We work to elect pro-choice women candidates at every level of office, from Park Board to President of the United States.
Our strategy is three-fold:
#1 We identify pro-choice women leaders who are ready to run for office today or are potential future candidates. We draw from our statewide membership and our partners including women leaders in the business, education, non-profit, community volunteer and political sectors. We encourage women to run for all levels of office to fill the candidate pipeline for public office.
#2 Once we have identified a woman who is ready to run, we help develop her into a winning candidate. womenwinning provides a wide variety of guidance to candidates on campaign start up and campaign plan writing to fundraising and budgeting.
#3 We endorse and generally provide funds at the maximum campaign finance limit and we hold fundraisers among our membership of over 10,000 people.
We give our candidates the tools they need to win, and we are by their side every step of the way from the day they decide to run to Election Day and beyond.
