"GET TO KNOW US: Progressive activist Ellen R. Malcolm was fed up with the declining number of women in Congress and with the tepid early support offered to most women candidates. So she gathered her friends, pooled their Rolodex contacts, and formed a group tasked with electing pro-choice Democratic women to the House and Senate. 27 years later, EMILY’s List is a full-service political organization and a  nationally recognized force for progressive change. We’ve conducted groundbreaking research and developed programs to empower women voters; we’ve helped elect 87 pro-choice Democratic congresswomen, 16 senators, 9 governors, and hundreds of women to state and local office. Four EMILY’s List alumnae serve in President Obama’s administration and our membership tops 1.5 million.  All of these women believe in and advocate for policies that empower women and families, while holding the far right accountable for their extremist agenda.
MEET OUR CANDIDATES: A successful small business owner. A tenured professor. A seasoned city councilwoman. A former chief of police. A decorated veteran. These are just a few of the inspiring pro-choice Democratic women running to take back the House and hold the Senate in 2012. You can meet and support all of our candidates on our candidate page.
GET INVOLVED: Now it’s time to get involved – and there are a few quick and easy ways to jump right in. Spread the word by emailing a friend about EMILY’s List.
