WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILY's List, the nation's largest resource for women in politics, celebrated the election of 10 pro-choice Democratic women to the Missouri General Assembly. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, released the following statement: 

“Up and down the ticket, Missouri women stepped up to run in some tough races this cycle, and we couldn’t be more proud of these 10 state legislative candidates who won their elections. They will hold Governor Parson and Republicans in the legislature accountable and be outspoken advocates for their communities on the issues that matter most. Women’s representation is critical in the fight for a safer, stronger, and more equitable Missouri, and we look forward to their leadership in the upcoming legislative session.”

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.
