“Tulsi Gabbard is truly inspiring. She’s dedicated to her country and her community and she isn’t afraid of standing up for what she believes,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “Our research shows that women voters want leaders like Tulsi right now who understand what they’re going through, and will take their fight to Washington. The EMILY’s List community is thrilled to stand with a dynamic, accomplished leader like Tulsi. We know she’s working hard to make it easier for women and their families – and that’s exactly what we need right now in Congress.”
Launched in 1995, the historic EMILY’s List WOMEN VOTE! project combines polling and research, advanced information technology, sophisticated message testing, and precinct-by-precinct field work to mobilize millions of women voters across the country. EMILY’s List designed WOMEN VOTE! to build a progressive political base that will elect more Democrats, especially women, by helping to increase turnout among women voters year after year.
In the 2009-2010 cycle, EMILY’s List raised more than $38.5 million to support its mission of recruiting and supporting women candidates, helping them build strong campaigns, and mobilizing women voters to turn out and vote. With a community of more than 1,500,000 members across the country, EMILY’s List is one of the largest political action committees in the nation. Since its founding in 1985, EMILY’s List has worked to elect 87 pro-choice, Democratic women to the U.S. House, 16 to the U.S. Senate, nine governors, and hundreds of women to the state legislatures, state constitutional offices, and other key local offices. In the 2009-2010 cycle, EMILY’s List had the largest number of members and donors in our 27 year history.
