EMILY’s List, NARAL, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund Presidents Join in Michigan to Campaign With Reproductive Rights Champions Like Gov. Whitmer Before Election

Michigan – On Saturday, Nov. 5, EMILY’s List President Laphonza Butler, Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill Johnson, and NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju will campaign in Michigan to support reproductive rights champions like Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Rep. Haley Stevens, Attorney General Dana Nessel, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, state Sen. Mallory McMorrow, and more. 
The three leaders of these major reproductive rights organizations are on the ground making sure voters know exactly where candidates stand on protecting reproductive freedom. Abortion is on the ballot in Michigan, and with only three days until the election, it’s essential to elect reproductive rights champions up and down the ballot to protect fundamental freedoms.

EMILY’s 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. EMILY’s 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 EMILY’s List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
