The office of Vice President commands great responsibility and influence, and there is no doubt that Sen. Kamala Harris is prepared to lead on Day One. Pro-choice women across Minnesota and the country are showing up -- as marchers, volunteers, donors, and voters -- to make history by electing Sen. Kamala Harris, the first woman and person of color to serve as Vice President of the United States!
Like you, we’re waiting with bated breath to find out who will be the former veep’s veep! Luckily, there is no shortage of effective, experienced women leaders who are prepared for the critical role. Check out our Executive Director Meggie Wittorf’s interview on Kare 11 about this historic decision and the importance of seeing women at the top of the ticket!
Minnesota’s 2020 Primary Election is on Tuesday, August 11th and 18 of Women Winning’s endorsed candidates are on the ballot! To move on to the November general election, these candidates first have to win their August primaries -- and they need your vote! We’ve created a special 2020 Primary Election Voter Guide so you can learn about the outstanding Women Winning candidates on the ballot in August and learn everything you need to know to vote by mail and vote safely during COVID-19.
From responding to the coronavirus pandemic to addressing systemic racism, local and state government policies directly impact our daily lives. We must have our best advocates in elected office at every level -- this June, Women Winning is proud to add five powerful pro-choice women running for state and local offices to our formidable slate of 2020 candidates. In the August Primary and again in November, we will elect pro-choice women up and down the ballot.
We need strong advocates, innovative leaders, and equitable representation at all levels of government. To make sure pro-choice women win up and down the ballot this year, Women Winning is thrilled to launch our 2020 Primary Election Action Series!
Recent protests of police brutality and systemic racism further amplify the critical importance of having our best advocates at all levels of government. We’re proud to endorse six pro-choice women running for critical state and county offices, bringing our total 2020 endorsements to 77 formidable candidates. It’s time to elect the government we need and deserve.
At the most fundamental level, what brings us all together in this work is the shared goal of creating a more just world by electing a government and fostering institutions in which we are seen and respected. We are proud to stand with the women leaders in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, and across the world who are showing up to demand change, and to listen to and grieve with their communities. These are the leaders we need.
Pro-choice women are well on their way to winning up and down the ballot in November! We’re proud to report that 96% of Women Winning’s endorsed candidates for state and municipal offices WON their party endorsing conventions this month!
COVID-19 has amplified just how critical it is that we have our best advocates in elected office. That’s why Women Winning’s work continues in full force. We’re proud to endorse nine pro-choice women running for crucial Minnesota House and County Board seats in 2020.
