Before May is over >>
Patricia, Since day one of Donald Trump's presidency, we've been out in full force fueling the resistance and standing with our pro-choice Democratic women against Trump's dangerous administration. Now we're focusing on bringing the resistance to the ballot box and helping more women run for office than ever before. We've got some tough races ahead of us in 2018, and we're planning to do as much as we can for as many women as we can. That's why I'm checking our records to make sure everyone who cares about this work is involved. Here are our records associated with this exact email address: 2017 EMILY's List donor: Pending Suggested action: Donate $3 or more: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_MayEOM As Chief Operating Officer, it's my job to make sure our resources match our budget -- and vice versa. And our budget went up dramatically after the outpouring of energy after the election. Over 13,000 women and counting have told us they want to run for office -- more than 13 times the number of women we heard from in 2016! Usually we have to do a lot of legwork in state and local races to ask women to run. This time, potential candidates are tweeting, emailing, and signing up on our website to tell us they're ready. That's why we've launched a brand-new program, Run to Win, to support these women with trainings, webinars, and other online resources as they learn how to run campaigns. That's on top of our mission to protect the nine of our 15 senators who are up for re-election next year and flip the House from Republicans' control. I'm not complaining: We're more fired up than ever to help these candidates win. But I do want to make sure we can be there for the thousands of women who are counting on us. Please donate $3 or more before midnight on Wednesday to help hit our End-of-Month goal: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_MayEOM Thank you, Leigh K.

[Senate] Our line of defense against Trump + the GOP
Patricia, Nine of our 15 EMILY's List women in the Senate are up for re-election next year: Tammy Baldwin (WI) Maria Cantwell (WA) Dianne Feinstein (CA) Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) Mazie Hirono (HI) Amy Klobuchar (MN) Claire McCaskill (MO) Debbie Stabenow (MI) Elizabeth Warren (MA) They're our last line of defense against the Republican Party's dangerous agenda.

This isn't impossible: We could flip the House
Patricia, How does taking back the House sound? I'm here to tell you: It's doable. Americans are sick and tired of Republican policies that hurt women and families. We're angry at representatives who won't stand up to Donald Trump and his harmful policies, like his budget that would strip Planned Parenthood of any and all federal funding, his health care bill that would kick millions off their insurance, or his plans to gut Medicaid. I know it seems early, and it won't be easy with districts heavily gerrymandered in favor of Republicans. But when this community works together, we can do incredible things. We can only flip the House next year if everyone pitches in. Donate $3 to unseat Republicans, elect pro-choice Democratic women, and flip the House from red to blue: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170523_email_FlipTheHouse We need to flip 24 seats to take back the House. That's a number within our reach. For starters, Trump's approval rating has fallen to a new low of just 41%. The first midterm election of a presidency is, historically, not a great election for the party that holds the White House, and Trump's low approval ratings could sink other Republicans. On top of that, 217 House Republicans voted for Trumpcare, a bill that would take health care away from millions while giving tax breaks to the rich. But it's not just about Republicans' shortcomings: All across the country, grassroots Democrats are getting fired up, marching in the streets, connecting with their communities, and considering running for office. At EMILY's List, more than 13,000 women have told us they're interested in running. And nearly 7,000 people have told us they want to help a woman run. We're using these unprecedented numbers to encourage more women to jump into House races. And if we can grow our recruitment roster and sustain this grassroots energy, we could build a wave big enough to flip those 24 seats and turn the House blue. Now is a crucial time to build our power. Donate $3 to make sure we have the resources to elect pro-choice Democratic women and take back the House next year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170523_email_FlipTheHouse Thank you, Stephanie Schriock President, EMILY's List

[Endorsements] 7 new VA candidates!
Patricia, Across the country, Democrats are energized to fight back and defeat President Trump's agenda at the ballot box. Our next big test is Virginia -- a state with off-year elections and where both the state Senate and state House are controlled by Republicans. Only Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe has stood between them and their anti-choice agenda. But we have a chance to change that with primaries on June 13th and the general election on November 7th. That's why I'm thrilled to let you know we just endorsed SEVEN women running for the Virginia state House. Help turn the Virginia House blue. Donate to EMILY's List to make sure we can send our seven women there this year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_VirginiaHouse Let me tell you a little bit more about each of our newly endorsed women: Hala Ayala (HD-51) knows what it's like to work your tail off for something worth fighting for, no matter how challenging. Hala is a single mother of two children and a cybersecurity specialist. She also helped organize Virginia for the Women's March on Washington -- so you know she can get things done. Jennifer Carroll Foy (HD-02) is a public defender and a local community college professor in her district. She broke barriers as one of the first women to graduate from the Virginia Military Institute, created a nonprofit for foster children, and has been a foster parent for several years. Kelly Fowler (HD-21) has made her home district her life's commitment. Kelly is a former Virginia Beach public school teacher who now leads an all-woman team of real estate agents. Inspired by the Women's March on Washington, she's ready to fight for her hometown in the Virginia House. Wendy Gooditis (HD-10) is an educator, a parent, and a community leader in her district where she's lived for over 20 years. Wendy is doing her part to fuel the resistance in Virginia by organizing an Indivisible group and women's rallies after Election Day last year. Kathleen Murphy (HD-34) is the top incumbent seat Virginia Democrats need to protect. She won her previous election by less than 200 votes. Before pursuing a career in public service, Kathleen helped found Salute Our Services, an organization to connect deployed service members to their families, and Kids Serve Too, an organization to honor children in military families. Danica Roem (HD-13) is a lifelong resident of Prince William County who spent the last nine years as a reporter for the local newspaper. Danica is openly transgender and will bring a voice that is so important to have at the state legislative decision-making table. Finally, Cheryl Turpin (HD-85) is facing a rematch with the Republican opponent who won by less than 400 votes in the previous special election for this seat. Cheryl has spent most of her career as a teacher focused on at-risk students. She is dedicated to closing the achievement gap and making sure every child is prepared for college. Each of these seven women represents the place that Virginia could be, and have the deep roots in their communities that we know candidates need to win at the local level. Donate to EMILY's List and help these seven women win their June primaries: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_VirginiaHouse Thanks, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

[Signature needed] Stand with Planned Parenthood >>
Patricia, President Trump's 2018 budget came out last night, and it's worse than we even imagined. Trump wants to cut ALL federal funding for Planned Parenthood -- going further than any other president has to gut their funding. And when we say all funding, we mean everything from funding for cervical and breast cancer screenings to Zika prevention, HIV/AIDS testing, sexual assault prevention, STI prevention, and children's health programs. If Trump gets his way, federal funding for these Planned Parenthood programs will be GONE. We have to fight back as hard and as fast as we can. Add your name to stand with Planned Parenthood: secure.emilyslist.org/page/s/20170523_email_StandPP No president has ever tried to exclude one provider from the entire federal budget before. And what's worse, he's going after an organization that provides critical resources to communities in need. Planned Parenthood is the nation's most trusted provider of reproductive health care, and it serves 2.5 million patients nationwide. Fifty-four percent of its clinics are located in underserved areas. It's the ONLY safety-net family-planning provider in over 20 percent of American counties. What happens to the women and families in those communities when their Planned Parenthood clinic has to close because of President Trump's budget? It's clear that Trump neither knows nor cares. We have to fight back. Add your name to stand strong with Planned Parenthood today: secure.emilyslist.org/page/s/20170523_email_StandPP Thank you, Leila McDowell Vice President of Communications, EMILY's List

👊Stopping Trumpcare
Patricia, While Senate Republicans are having closed-door meetings to draft their version of Trumpcare, our EMILY's List women are getting ready to fight. Elizabeth Warren promised to fight "as long and hard as we can" to make health care a reality for every American. Mazie Hirono has pledged to stand strong against any Trumpcare proposal that undermines the progress of the Affordable Care Act. And Tammy Baldwin committed to oppose any bill that raises costs and covers fewer people. These women along with six other EMILY's List senators are up for re-election next year. Right now they're the best line of defense against Trumpcare -- donate $3 to help keep them in the Senate, protecting us: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170519_email_ELWomenvTrumpcare Just as they've done before, you can count on our 15 EMILY's List senators to hold the line against Republicans' extreme agenda. Our Senate women were a united front against Betsy DeVos' nomination as secretary of education and anti-choice judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court. When it comes to blocking the worst of President Trump's agenda, EMILY's List women resist and persist. But nine out of these 15 women are up for election next year. Imagine what Trump and Mitch McConnell will try to get away with if EMILY's List women aren't there to stand up to them.

What a return to "pre-existing conditions" looks like

Make them rue the day they voted for Trumpcare >>
Patricia, 217 Republicans in the House voted to pass Trumpcare. Every single one of those votes was a vote against affordable, comprehensive health care coverage for women and families, and that's despicable. We're planning to go after as many of those 217 seats as we can, but there are 14 in particular we've set our sights on. Why? Because they represent districts that voted for Hillary Clinton, and that makes them HIGHLY vulnerable. Donate to help elect pro-choice Democratic women to defend our health care and replace these anti-woman, anti-family Republicans: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170517_email_VulnerableGOP The most vulnerable Republicans who voted for Trumpcare: John Culberson (TX-07), Carlos Curbelo (FL-26), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Darrell Issa (CA-49), Steve Knight (CA-25), Martha McSally (AZ-02), Erik Paulsen (MN-03), Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), Peter Roskam (IL-06), Ed Royce (CA-39), Pete Sessions (TX-32), David Valadao (CA-21), Mimi Walters (CA-45), Kevin Yoder (KS-03). Trumpcare would decimate coverage for folks with pre-existing conditions -- while vastly expanding the definition of these conditions to include C-sections, domestic violence, and even heavy periods. Taking such an extreme vote while representing a swing district opens the door to introduce voters to a better option: pro-choice Democratic women who will fight to protect their health care. We're already hard at work looking for candidates who can take on these Republicans. But we need to have the resources to have their backs when they decide to run. Donate to help elect pro-choice Democratic women who will protect our health care and unseat anti-woman Republicans: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170517_email_VulnerableGOP Thanks, Kate Black Chief of Staff, EMILY's List

Help Gwen turn the Florida governor's seat🔵
Patricia, We've got a problem in Florida. Despite being a swing state, Florida hasn't had a Democratic governor in almost 20 years. And it's hurting Florida women. One in five Florida women lives in a county without an abortion provider. Over the last few years, Republican Governor Rick Scott has attempted to defund Planned Parenthood by cutting state funding for any health care clinic that provides abortions. It's time to stop the attacks on women and families. That's why we've endorsed pro-choice champion Gwen Graham in her bid to become the next governor of Florida. We know flipping Florida won't be easy, so Gwen needs our support. Donate now to her campaign -- 100% of your donation goes directly to her: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/gwen-graham18 Gwen is no stranger to overcoming the odds. She put her name on the ballot for the first time in 2014 when gridlock in Congress opened up an opportunity to defeat an extreme Republican. That year, Gwen was one of only two Democrats in the country to flip a House seat from a sitting Republican. She was also the first woman to represent Florida's 2nd District. We were with Gwen in her 2014 race, and we're proud to be with her now. She not only shares our values, she knows how to win a tough race. Gwen's got exactly what Democrats need to turn this governor's seat blue, but Florida is a notoriously expensive state to run in. So she's counting on us to help her get off to a strong start.

13 men making decisions about women's health care😡
Patricia, There's no doubt about it: Trumpcare will hit women the hardest. Currently, Trumpcare defunds Planned Parenthood, slashes Medicaid, and removes protections for so-called "pre-existing conditions" like being a rape survivor and having a C-section. So who's responsible for crafting the companion bill in the Senate? Why, a group of men, of course. That's right: 13 Republican men -- including our pals Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton -- and ZERO women will have a say in repealing Obamacare. Republicans didn't even include Lisa Murkowski or Susan Collins, two Republican women who actually serve on the Senate health committee, unlike Cruz and Cotton. Let's show Republicans that shutting women out of decisions about health care -- whether it's legislation or choices in their doctor's office -- comes at a cost. Donate $3 to help defeat anti-woman Republicans and elect pro-choice Democratic women: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170515_email_WorkingGroup The GOP Senate Trumpcare working group includes Mitch McConnell, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander, Mike Enzi, John Thune, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner, John Barrasso, John Cornyn, Robert Portman, and Pat Toomey. Here's the cherry on top: Republican leaders are actually DEFENDING the composition of the working group rather than committing to change it. An aide to Mitch McConnell said, "So you can get caught up in process, or you can focus on the actual reality." Senator John Cornyn called the issue of an all-men group "totally bogus." Another GOP aide said, "We have no interest in playing the games of identity politics." Missing the point much? It's not about optics or process. This bill would shatter health care access, affordability, and coverage for women across the country -- low-income women and women of color in particular. That's exactly why we fight to make sure women have a seat at the decision-making table.

On a mission
Patricia, Nice to meet you! I'm Leila, the new vice president of communications at EMILY's List. I'm one of the many people who looked around after the 2016 presidential election and thought, "Women are going to be the ones leading the resistance." And I could think of no better place to land than EMILY's List. I've joined this team at a crucial time: We're on a mission to get rid of as many anti-woman, anti-choice Republicans as possible and elect more pro-choice Democratic women than ever before. And our work is broad in scope -- we're talking about helping women from mayors to senators and every office in between. You can expect to hear PLENTY from me on all of the terrible things Republicans will try to get past us -- and together, we'll hold them accountable (believe me). I'm fired up to dive headfirst into this work. Are you with me? Donate $3 to EMILY's List to support everything we're going to do together: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170509_email_WelcomeLeila Here's a bit more about me: I'm originally from New York. I've worked in broadcast journalism at places like CNN, NPR, and a number of local television stations. I also worked in African American media committed to the kind of aggressive journalism that speaks truth to power and uncovers the facts, no matter where the chips might fall. I also had the honor of representing South African President Nelson Mandela during his first U.S. tour after being released from prison. Over the course of my career, I've had the privilege to lead communications in a number of big fights, from helping organize union workers in North Carolina to leading voter registration efforts for low-income Americans in 22 states. I founded the first African American woman-owned public relations firm in D.C., where I worked on social justice issues, and most recently served as vice president of communications at the NAACP. I'm at EMILY's List because I believe with every fiber of my being in resisting -- against the worldview Donald Trump represents, the policies his cronies in Congress are supporting, and every extreme Republican state legislator who feels emboldened by what they're seeing in Washington. But if there's one thing I know about this kind of work, it's that it takes all of us working together to get it done. I can't wait to roll up my sleeves and get to work with you. Let's get started. Donate $3 to help hold Republicans accountable, defeat them, and replace them with pro-choice Democratic women: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170509_email_WelcomeLeila Thank you -- and talk more soon, Leila McDowell Vice President of Communications, EMILY's List

My last email (at least for a little while)
Patricia, After I left EMILY's List in 2005, I always suspected I might come back. And now, as I wrap up my second stint, I wouldn't rule out returning again. The reason is simple. There is something truly special about this community -- one I'm proud to have seen grow from three to five million people strong in my three years here. This community is the one you want in your corner for the tough fights, whether you're a former Harvard professor taking on a popular Republican incumbent in Massachusetts, trying to break the Senate glass ceiling for Latinas, or even running for president. And this community never fails to rise to the occasion. I'm so incredibly proud that we raised a combined $90 million for our candidates last cycle -- resources that helped elect four new women to the Senate and eight new women to the House, including nine women of color. The presidential election was heartbreaking for me, as it was for all of us. But the energy after the election, from the millions of women who marched the day after the inauguration to the more than 12,000 women who've reached out to EMILY's List about running for office, has been a tonic for me. The resistance is strong, and EMILY's List will continue to play a critical role in it. So as I finish up my tenure as executive director, I wanted to make sure I said one thing directly to this community with heartfelt gratitude: Thank you. We haven't won every battle. But we have never, ever let the fear of failure stop us from giving our all. And in the spirit of EMILY's List, I leave you with one final ask -- keep giving it your all, and chip in a little to keep the fight going: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170505_email_JOCFarewell It's been a pleasure to lead this community which inspires me every single day.

❗House Republicans just passed Trumpcare
Patricia, In a move that would take away health care from tens of millions of Americans, House Republicans just passed Trumpcare. Desperate to give himself a victory he can brag about, President Trump's plan throws women under the bus: It rolls back key elements of Obamacare, like coverage for pregnancy and birth control. And a last-minute amendment would allow insurance companies to deny coverage for a horrific list of issues that would now qualify as pre-existing conditions, including surviving sexual assault, surviving domestic violence, having postpartum depression, or having a C-section. Calling this bill an assault on women isn't hyperbole: It's reality. The bill now moves to the Senate, where Democrats -- including our 15 women -- are the last line of defense before it lands on Trump's desk. They'll be fighting tooth and nail to stop it. Are you with them?

12,000 women + 7,000 volunteers💃
Patricia, Run to Win is three months old! Here's all that's happened with our brand-new program: 12,000+ women have told us they want to run for office. Almost 7,000 people have volunteered to help these women run. We've held 4 candidate trainings: Women's March, Arizona, Wisconsin, and the People's Climate March; with many more coming soon... The movement we're building is unstoppable -- IF we keep growing it. Donate $3 to help fund this work: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170502_email_RtwProgressReport - the EMILY's List team

There are ② things that can defeat Trumpcare >>
Patricia, In a desperate attempt to give President Trump a victory, congressional Republicans have resurrected their plan to repeal Obamacare. That's right: It's back. With a vengeance. And to try to shove this deeply unpopular bill over the finish line, what is Paul Ryan doing? Attacking women's health care. The latest version of their plan would allow states to deny women essential health benefits like birth control, maternity care, and breast cancer screenings. Trumpcare was defeated last time because of a wave of grassroots opposition to the bill and our women in Congress standing united against it. Donate to help defeat it again and send a message that women's health care is not up for debate: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170501_email_Trumpcare Under the GOP's plan, insurers could charge people with pre-existing conditions far more for their insurance. We could be taken back to a pre-Obamacare era, when pregnancy and even being a woman could be considered a pre-existing condition. The attacks on women's health care don't stop there. The bill would also defund Planned Parenthood and further restrict coverage of abortion in the private insurance market. At times like these, American women need defenders in their corner. That's why our women in Congress thwarted recent attempts to pass Trumpcare and why they'll keep fighting it every time until Republicans back down. Donate to support the women in Congress who will protect our health care and help grow their ranks: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170501_email_Trumpcare Thanks, Kate Black Chief of Staff, EMILY's List

Fwd: 9 women blocking Trump in the Senate
Patricia, Next year, we have the biggest group of Senate women EVER up for re-election: nine of our 15 senators, to be exact. Keeping all nine in the Senate is essential to resisting President Trump. And an important part of making sure that happens is hitting our April End-of-Month goal. Please donate $3 before midnight to help hit $150,000: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170427_email_EOM Thanks, Caitlin Mitchell Vice President of Digital, EMILY's List
