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 over 930 women and men across the state.
The Matriots Class of 2019
One year after making our first political endorsements, The Matriots is now a force in Ohio politics. We are thrilled to promote the campaigns of 76 women running for office in Ohio in 2019.
At the link below you will find a qualified and captivating group of candidates running for city offices and board of education. These women are impressively talented and fiercely committed to their local communities.
Please join us in supporting, encouraging, and, most importantly, voting for these women in November.
