EMILYs List Announces 2019 Run To Win 101 Training Schedule
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, announced its initial 2019 Run to Win 101 candidate training schedule targeting 15 cities across the country. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:
“Last year, a record number of women stepped up to run for office and a record number of them were victorious. With the right tools, women from all over the country, regardless of previous political experience, can make their voices heard and be powerful advocates for their communities. At EMILYs List, we’re committed to building on this momentum and training a new generation of inspiring women leaders. We’re thrilled to be able to expand our national training and outreach program to engage and train the more than 42,000 women we’ve heard from since the day Trump was elected. Last cycle, we trained more than 5,000 women in 25 states and we’re ready to reach even more.”
EMILYs List’s Run to Win 101 training program provides the basic and necessary tools — from selecting an office to run for, to telling their personal stories, to how to build a team— for first-time candidates to run, and win, effective campaigns. Our first training of the 2020 cycle held a few weeks ago in Washington D.C. included a diverse group of nearly 150 potential future candidates ready to use their experiences and values to ignite change in their communities.

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million dollars and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 40,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state and national offices.
