EMILYs List Congratulates Julia Brownley on Her Reelection to California’s 26th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Julia Brownley on her reelection to California’s 26th Congressional District. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“Julia Brownley has been a faithful and dedicated leader for the people of California’s 26th Congressional District, and EMILYs List is thrilled to congratulate her on her reelection today because we know that she will continue to lead with passion and fearlessness in the face of extremism. Brownley is a pro-choice champion who will bring us one step closer to a true pro-choice majority in Congress, and we are proud of all that she has accomplished for reproductive freedom in her career as a legislator thus far.”
Julia Brownley has been a member of the EMILYs List community since 2005 when she first ran for California State Assembly. After serving for more than a decade on Santa Monica-Malibu’s School Board, Brownley put her education policy experience to work in the State Assembly, cutting school administration costs and eliminating red tape for qualified teachers. Her bills to streamline child abuse investigations and expand maternity health care coverage have helped countless women and families throughout California. Brownley received recognition of her hard work from the California School Boards Association and was named “2010 Legislator of the Year.” She was elected to the 26th Congressional District for the first time in 2012, and ever since Brownley has fought tirelessly for quality education, reproductive health, and a safe environment.
Women Vote, EMILY's List's independent expenditure arm, invested $550,000 in a television and digital program highlighting Republican Matt Jacobs’ dangerous views on abortion.
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.
