CHANGING THE FACE OF POWER
Women Winning’s mission is to recruit, train, support, and elect pro-choice women from all political parties to all levels of public office.
Since our founding in 1982, the number of pro-choice women county commissioners, mayors, and state legislators in Minnesota has more than doubled — but we still have a long way to go.
Today, pro-choice women are stepping up to run for office in record numbers. It’s up to all of us to stand up, sign up, show up, and get them elected.
IN THE CHANGE
What’s New at Women Winning
Last week, Women Winning celebrated incredible Election Day victories. We are writing today with more news worth celebrating. After a successful four months as Interim Executive Director, it is our pleasure to announce that Meggie Wittorf will become permanent Executive Director of Women Winning.
Record numbers of pro-choice women ran for office in 2018 and on November 6th, record numbers of pro-choice women WON. Minnesotans were activated by a strong pro-choice, women-led ticket and were ready to change the face of power — 58 Women Winning endorsed candidates were ELECTED to office, from U.S. Senate to School Board.
This June, I visited Minneapolis to speak at the Women Winning Annual Luncheon — what a memorable trip! As Senior Advisor to President Obama, I’ve had the privilege to be part of many inspirational moments. That said, I will never forget the powerful image of the cohort of pro-choice women candidates standing on stage at the luncheon, ready for 2018 and beyond.
