NEWS + UPDATES
“Women Winning is proud to launch our 2021 endorsement program with the endorsement of these impressive, determined pro-choice women running for Minneapolis and Duluth city council. These leaders are stepping up to serve their communities, and we stand shoulder to shoulder with them on the path toward a government that better reflects the people it serves.”
"Everyone who runs for office is putting themselves out there, and that only increases for women, for young people, and especially for people of color. When people step up to run, we’ve got to have their backs. Otherwise, we’re missing out on quality people who have so much to offer their communities."
Women Winning is thrilled to announce our powerful event: Women in the West Wing! Go behind the scenes in the West Wing with Valerie Jarrett, longest-serving Senior Advisor to President Obama, and Tina Tchen, former Executive Director of the White House Council on Women & Girls and Chief of Staff to First Lady Obama -- and join Women Winning to build power for pro-choice women in Minnesota, in the West Wing… and beyond!
Our Twin Cities community, our state, and our nation are once again grieving the tragic death of a Black person killed by police. We mourn for Daunte Wright and stand in solidarity with the Black community who continue to be subjected to this unrelenting trauma. It must stop.
What’s next in our work to change the face of power? There are important opportunities on the horizon and, rest assured, our team is firing on all cylinders. For more from Women Winning on 2021 municipal elections & the 2022 midterm amidst redistricting, women’s historic representation in the Biden-Harris Administration, and our commitment to standing with AAPI communities, please watch the latest video greeting from Meggie Wittorf, Women Winning President!
Josie brings a decade of political leadership and organizing expertise, as well as invaluable experience working to expand majorities and flip state legislatures. With every seat in the Minnesota House and Senate up for reelection next year due to redistricting, we couldn’t be more excited to have Josie join us in the essential work to protect and expand pro-choice women’s representation at the Minnesota Capitol -- and at every level of government!
"If anything, the past couple of months have shown that democracy isn’t guaranteed. We have to tend to it and care for it -- we can’t take it for granted. And we can’t take our rights and our own reproductive healthcare for granted."
"When we talk about equity, it is not the icing on the cake -- something extra, something additional. It has to be the butter in the cake, embedded in how we do our work. I want to help my colleagues be intentional about doing our work through a race equity lens."
Wine, Chocolate, & Choice -- one of the largest, premier events for Minnesota advocates for reproductive rights and women’s leadership -- is BACK with an all-star program you don’t want to miss! Join Women Winning and U.S. Rep. Katie Porter to celebrate shattered ceilings, our Madam Vice President, and the history we will continue to make.
