The 2018 election may be a big opportunity for Democrats… but only if they reclaim working-class economic issues. Read more about our March 2017 focus groups with women in Virginia and Ohio.
Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund informs and mobilizes unmarried women and the rest of the Rising American Electorate (unmarried women, people of color, and millennials) to participate in our government and make their voices heard in our democracy. The Action Fund is dedicated to encouraging the Rising American Electorate — particularly unmarried women — to bring their voices to our nation’s political conversation and to advocate for policies important to them. The Action Fund seeks to empower the RAE on their own with the facts they need to make their own informed choices about ballot measures, candidates, and issues.
Our ongoing advocacy, activation, and research work is dependent on donations. We couldn’t do what we do without the generous support of our donors. Please consider a financial donation to the Action Fund.
Statement from Page Gardner, Founder and President, Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund
Jon Ossoff’s strong showing in last night’s special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District made one thing clear— 2018 could be a very different midterm cycle. His campaign, with its slogan, “Make Trump Furious,” proved that Democrats can capitalize on opposition to the President and his party to mount fierce challenges in historically red districts.
Ossoff’s campaign – with its reliance on grassroots energy, volunteer involvement (over 3500 volunteers participated in his campaign), and his emphasis on the economy, health care, women’s health and ending waste in government also provides a blueprint for races to come in 2017 and 2018.
