Patricia, Happy New Year! I hope you're ready to hit the ground running for 2018, because we've set some ambitious goals for the next 11 months -- including recruiting women to run for 598 critical state legislative seats. It's a huge undertaking, our biggest effort to remake the face of state politics ever. But I know this community is up to the challenge. Donate $3 to help recruit, train, and build winning campaigns for women who will run for the 598 seats we're targeting: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20180102_email_598NewYear Our political landscape has changed so much since the beginning of 2017. That's because of our history-making wins in state and local races over the past year -- we turned several seats in areas Trump won blue and helped 11 women flip seats in the Virginia House of Delegates. Those victories inspired us to go back to the map and look at which other seats we could target, and we landed on a whopping 598. Electing pro-choice Democratic women to those seats will fundamentally alter the makeup of state legislatures -- breaking up Republican supermajorities in some and entirely flipping others from red to blue. And how we spend these next 11 months will be crucial to making this a reality. Donate $3 to make sure we have the resources to recruit, train, and elect hundreds of pro-choice Democratic women to state legislatures this year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20180102_email_598NewYear Thanks, Stephanie Schriock President, EMILY's List
