EMILY’S LIST CELEBRATES BI VISIBILITY DAY
WASHINGTON, D.C. – EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement in recognition of Bi Visibility Day:
“EMILYs List is proud to support bisexual women who continue to make history increasing much needed LGBTQ+ representation. Their integral work championing voter access and equality, while defending choice has never been more important. As Republicans continue to whittle away at the rights of Americans, it is imperative that we elect representatives that reflect the communities they represent. On Bi Visibility Day, and every day, we will continue to celebrate and lift up Democratic pro-choice women that are members of the LGBTQ+ community.”
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,400 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
