Our Mission

Our Mission.

EMILY’s List elects pro-choice Democratic women to office.

Our Vision.

We envision a world where women are equally represented at all levels of government, and achieve the highest leadership positions with our legislative and executive bodies; the influence of women office holders leads to the adoption of a host of progressive public policies to ensure that women have equal opportunities at home, in the workplace, and in the public sphere; our community of millions of engaged women and men ensure that the voice of women is heard and their power is celebrated.

Our process for electing more pro-choice Democratic women to all levels of government is simple.

We recruit the very best women candidates. Our political team identifies, recruits, and trains the most capable and promising pro-choice Democratic women leaders and helps them build winning campaign teams.

We build a financial foundation for victory. Support at all levels (plus direct contributions to the candidates you choose) are combined with thousands of others to create a fundraising force that puts millions of dollars into the campaigns of pro-choice Democratic women.

We hold the GOP accountable. We don’t just help our candidates respond when they are attacked — we define their GOP opponents before they can hide their records.  

We get women to the polls. The EMILY’s List WOMEN VOTE! project combines polling, and research, sophisticated message testing, the latest innovations in data and technology, as well as good old-fashioned voter contact to mobilize millions of women voters across the country.
