WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed eleven women for the Nevada Legislature. Laphonza Butler, president of EMILYs List, released the following statement:

“EMILYs List is proud to endorse this slate of Democratic pro-choice women for the Nevada Legislature. As anti-choice lawyers and politicians seek to limit abortion access throughout the United States, it is urgent that we elect candidates up and down the ballot who will protect our reproductive freedom and uphold our constitutional rights. We are confident that in office, these women will defend our right to choose and  champion legislation that advances justice throughout Nevada.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect Democratic pro-choice 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, 159 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,300 women to state and local office. More than 40% 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.
