EMILY's List 30th Anniversary
(EMILY - "Early Money Is Like Yeast"- 1985)
EMILY's List is an American political action committee (PAC) that aims to help elect pro-choice Democratic female candidates to office.
The group's mission is to cultivate a donor network to raise money for pro-choice female Democratic candidates.
To become an official EMILY's List member, an individual must pay $100 to join EMILY's List, and agree to donate a minimum of $100 each to two U.S. Senate, U.S. House, or gubernatorial candidates.
Now EMILY is more than a slogan — she’s a candidate, a voter, an operative, a member.
Today’s EMILY’s List goes beyond fundraising with a strategic approach to recruiting candidates, winning elections and mobilizing voters.
2012 W.H.Y — Women's Historic Year was truly an historic year, EMILY’s List raised a record breaking $51.2 million dollars, which helped elect 9 women to the Senate, 18 to the House, and the only Democratic woman governor in the country. And EMILY’s List membership has quadrupled since 2010, to over 2,000,000 members.
So happy 30thAnniversary!
