Despite the unpopularity of Trump and the Republican Congress, Democrats need to address their shortcomings with key segments of the electorate, according to our latest polls and online panels.
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.

While signing the Voting Rights Act 53 years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed the landmark law “a triumph for freedom as huge as any victory that has ever been won on any battlefield.”
But there are no lasting victories in the struggle for civil rights.
The Rising American Electorate – unmarried women, people of color, and young people – are frustrated with the economy and health care costs under Donald Trump and, as a result, are more motivated to vote in the midterm elections, according to the latest groundbreaking research from Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund (WVWVAF) and Democracy Corps. Democrats are up five points in the 33 GOP-held Cook competitive House races.
