Patricia, I thought this election might scare women off from taking the brave step of putting their name on the ballot. But over the last month, we've seen a huge surge in women telling EMILY's List they want to learn how to run strong campaigns and run for office. People are fired up -- and I want to make sure we have the resources to support this unprecedented wave of potential candidates and campaign staffers. Donate $3 to make sure we have the resources to train and support as many of these potential candidates as we can: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20161216_email_SteppingUp This is uncharted territory for us, too. We've seen surges in women wanting to run before -- but nothing like this. It's a huge opportunity to have a big impact in 2017, 2018, and beyond. If we're going to support this new wave of women, we're going to need to gather more resources and FAST. The scale of our work really depends on what our community is willing to do. Donate $3 to EMILY's List to help elect the next generation of pro-choice Democratic women: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20161216_email_SteppingUp Thank you, Jess O'Connell Executive Director, EMILY's List

Patricia,

I thought this election might scare women off from taking the brave step of putting their name on the ballot. But over the last month, we've seen a huge surge in women telling EMILY's List they want to learn how to run strong campaigns and run for office.

People are fired up — and I want to make sure we have the resources to support this unprecedented wave of potential candidates and campaign staffers.

Donate $3 to make sure we have the resources to train and support as many of these potential candidates as we can.

This is uncharted territory for us, too. We've seen surges in women wanting to run before — but nothing like this.

It's a huge opportunity to have a big impact in 2017, 2018, and beyond.

If we're going to support this new wave of women, we're going to need to gather more resources and FAST. The scale of our work really depends on what our community is willing to do.

Donate $3 to EMILY's List to help elect the next generation of pro-choice Democratic women:
