FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, voters in multiple states affirmed their commitment to abortion rights. EMILYs List Interim President Jessica Mackler released the following statement:
“Today’s results have made it abundantly clear once again: no matter how you dress them up, voters will reject abortion bans and the politicians who support them. EMILYs List is proud to stand with voters and proud to support Democratic pro-choice women who will fight for our rights.”
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.
