EMILYs List Congratulates 25 Women on Their Election to the Colorado General Assembly and Local Offices

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics, celebrated the election of 25 pro-choice Democratic women to Colorado state and local offices. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:

“EMILYs List is excited to celebrate the victories of these 25 outstanding Colorado women leaders. In 2018, Colorado women helped flip the state Senate and once again, they were instrumental in protecting Democratic majorities in both chambers this year. As trailblazers, activists, and public servants, these women are the champions Coloradans deserve in elected office. Whether they are serving in the legislature or as district attorney, we are confident that they will use their diverse experiences in public service to advocate for equality and empower others to fight for change. We look forward to all of their accomplishments in 2021 and beyond.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 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 and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,100 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women 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. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
