EMILYs List Commemorates Jewish American Heritage Month

May 1, 2024


WASHINGTON, D.C. – In celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month, EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“During Jewish American Heritage Month, EMILYs List proudly celebrates the achievements and enduring spirit of Jewish Americans. We honor Jewish Democratic pro-choice women leaders like Sen. Jacky Rosen, and Reps. Kim Schrier and Elissa Slotkin, who are actively working towards a more inclusive and just society. While we honor their contributions to our nation, we must also acknowledge the antisemitism that they and all Jewish Americans continue to experience today. EMILYs List is committed to supporting and elevating Jewish American voices in our political landscape, endorsing candidates who fight for justice and against hate, reflecting our dedication to a future where diversity and equity are embraced.”
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 $850 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 operations 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, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 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.
