4/13: EMILYs List to Host Run to Win Candidate Training in Las Vegas, NV
WASHINGTON, D.C. — EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, is hosting a Run to Win 101 candidate training in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, April 13.
The midterm election of 2018 ushered in the most diverse class of congressional leaders in American history. EMILYs List has been committed to recruiting, training and endorsing many of the women who ran and won during the last cycle, and the momentum is still there.
“In 2018, women made the difference in Nevada and all over the country; taking back the House and making history in states like Nevada that have the benefit of a majority-women legislature,” said Lianna Stroster, senior director of national training at EMILYs List.
“This is why it’s so important that we continue to train and recruit in Nevada and all over the country to ensure that women have an equal seat at the table in state government and beyond.”
Since Election Day 2016, more than 46,000 women have contacted EMILYs List expressing interest in running for public office. As a result, we launched our largest-ever national training and recruitment program, Run to Win. Over the last cycle, EMILYs List has trained over 5,000 women.
EMILY's List’s Run To Win Training offers women the basic tools they need to launch and run a winning campaign. During the training, participants will learn the basics of running for office including taking the first steps to get ready to run, how to build their team, and telling their personal story.

Saturday, April 13 (9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.) – Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. (open press from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.)

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic 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 strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. Nearly 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. During the historic 2017-2018 cycle, EMILYs List raised a record-breaking $110 million and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election, more than 46,000 women have 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.
