The Matriots is an Ohio nonpartisan political action committee founded in May of 2017 by a group of women who participated in the Women’s March on Washington. Moved by the tremendous outpouring of support that day for American women and their issues, the Ohio marchers decided to launch an effort to put more women into political leadership to ensure economic justice and advance policies impacting the lives of Ohio women.
On July 4, The Matriots PAC launched a Founding Member campaign to raise enough funds to create a sustainable organization, hire an executive director, and make political contributions to female candidates in 2018; today those Founding Members number more than 300 women and men. Our full membership includes more than 500 women and men across the state.
Our members come from different political parties and represent different ethnicities, races, religions, and sexual identifications. But we all believe that we share values, not labels.
Congratulations to all nine of our endorsed candidates for winning their primary races! We couldn’t be prouder. And, we look forward to supporting you in the general election this fall. Read all about our endorsed candidates here.
