Mayor Cory Booker knows what's at stake
Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker knows what's at stake for women and families in this election. Check out this email that he sent today to the EMILY's List community, asking our members to step up and contribute to help elect pro-choice Democratic women to office:
This week, the Republican Party demonstrated in so many ways how it does not reflect my values -- and I know it does not reflect yours. We cannot and will not regress on women's health and safety.
If there is one thing I know for certain, it is this: when women get involved, things change. Neighborhoods change; cities change; our nation changes -- all for the better.
Today we need that change urgently, and that is why I am standing with the members of EMILY's List -- and I ask you to stand shoulder to shoulder with us, too. Now is the moment when we need to act, because our support now will pay off tenfold come Election Day.
EMILY's List candidates can only win if we all stand behind them. These Democratic women leaders truly represent the power of people coming together. Contribute today to be a part of a powerful movement electing women and moving us all forward.
EMILY's List works tirelessly to help elect true leaders, like Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, war hero Tammy Duckworth, Police Chief Val Demings, and Mayor Lois Frankel -- women of profound courage who pour their heart and soul into making change happen. EMILY's List women don't just vote the right way. They lead when it matters. They put their lives on the line; they roll up their sleeves; they come together to get things done.
Each of us has a choice: accept things as they are or work to change them. EMILY's List has been changing America for the better for 27 years, because of people like you who stand tall for women leaders.
In 2012, we're faced with that same choice in more stark terms than we have ever seen. We can move our country forward. Or we can stay silent, allowing those who would turn back the clock on progress in our country to win, while we look away. Which will it be?
I know what my choice is, and I'm asking you to step up and join me. EMILY's List -- you and me and members all over the country -- are going to elect extraordinary women leaders who will make a huge difference immediately. Click here now to contribute.
Thanks for all your hard work. I know what it takes to make a difference, and you are doing it.
Mayor Cory Booker
Newark, New Jersey
