WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics, celebrated the election of 12 pro-choice Democratic women to the Florida Legislature. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement: 

“EMILYs List is thrilled to celebrate the hard-fought victories of these incredible pro-choice champions in Florida. As Republicans continue to advance their draconian and dangerous agenda, these nine progressive leaders will be instrumental to ensuring that women and working families have a voice in Tallahassee, holding Republicans accountable, and ensuring fair maps are drawn during the 2021 redistricting process. We were proud to support these women throughout their campaigns and look forward to seeing the necessary change they bring to the legislature.”

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 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 60,000 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.
