EMILYs List Congratulates Kathy Manning on Reelection to North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, congratulates Kathy Manning on her reelection to Congress. EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:
“EMILYs List celebrates Rep. Kathy Manning’s reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives. We know that she will continue steadfastly advocating for her constituents, fighting to fix our health care system, promote economic opportunity, and codify abortion rights into law. We’re thrilled that this pro-choice champion can continue fighting for a brighter future for North Carolinians in Congress.”
Rep. Kathy Manning is an experienced leader running for reelection in North Carolina's newly redrawn 6th Congressional District. Her great-grandparents came to the United States fleeing religious persecution, and she has said she was “raised with the understanding that I have an obligation to give back.” After graduating from Harvard University and the University of Michigan Law School, Manning moved with her husband to his hometown of Greensboro, NC in 1987, where they have raised their three children. A former immigration attorney, she left the major law firm where she had been a partner for 15 years to start her own practice. Manning has worked tirelessly to serve others and was the first woman to lead one of the largest charitable, faith-based organizations in the world, The Jewish Federations of North America. She also helped those who lost their jobs during the Great Recession access food, health care, mortgage assistance, and job retraining. A powerful advocate for North Carolinians, she has worked to provide school readiness programs for vulnerable children, to help students in her community access higher education, and to help seniors live with dignity.
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.
