"We have a number of women running for President and, while they still face a bigger uphill challenge than the men running, we can see [sexism] and we are more prepared to talk about it. The sunlight helps us. These conversations are uncomfortable, but it’s how we clear the path."
With perpetual threats to choice at the federal level -- from the elimination of Title X funding to the anti-choice majority on the U.S. Supreme Court -- state legislatures are fundamental to protecting reproductive rights... Early support is critical and Women Winning is proud to endorse this slate of formidable pro-choice women running in the most competitive State Senate and House races in Minnesota.
“Minnesota will be a key battleground state in 2020 and Women Winning is proud to take early action in these critical races to ensure Senator Smith and Representative Craig are re-elected...Women Winning is committed to protecting -- and expanding -- pro-choice women’s representation at all levels of office in 2020.”
On November 5th, pro-choice women were elected to critical local offices in sweeping victories across Minnesota — more than 80% of Women Winning’s 34 endorsed candidates were elected to School Boards, City Councils, County Boards, and Mayor’s Offices. Minnesotans continue to be activated by pro-choice women candidates. Inspiring record voter turnout, record numbers of women were elected to public office in 2018, and the strength of pro-choice women candidates was again reflected in the results of 2019 municipal and school district elections in Minnesota
"It's important to be engaged so that we can start to make change together. Change comes from people in the community raising their voices and taking action. Whether its hosting neighborhood gatherings, organizing rallies, or even showing up to City Council meetings, change comes from the people."
Representation matters -- at all levels of government. Pro-choice women must be represented not just in Washington and at the State Capitol, but in municipal offices across the state.
