March 14, 2024


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Nancy Goroff for election to New York’s 1st Congressional District. EMILYs List President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:

“Nancy Goroff is a champion for Long Islanders who has spent her life serving and bettering her community. In Congress, she’ll fight for our reproductive freedom and stand up to the Republican plan to ban abortion not just for New Yorkers but for all Americans. EMILYs List is proud to support Goroff because we know she’s the best candidate to take this seat back from anti-choice extremist Nick LaLota and deliver results for the 1st Congressional District.”

Nancy Goroff is an advocate, non-profit founder, and former chemistry professor running to flip New York’s 1st Congressional District blue and ensure her community’s reproductive freedom is never taken away. As the daughter of small business owners, Goroff knows firsthand the importance of good-paying jobs and economic innovation. She taught chemistry at New York’s Stony Brook University for two decades and founded Long Island Strong Schools Alliance, a non-profit organization that advocates for local public schools and kids. Goroff lives in and raised her two children in Suffolk County, and she is ready to work in Congress to deliver results for her community. She was first endorsed by EMILYs List in 2019.

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 $850 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 operations 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, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 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.
