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, 2017 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 are 509 women and men. Our full membership includes over 1,450 women and men across the state and across the political spectrum.
The Matriots Class of 2020
The Matriots is pleased to share with you the next General Election class of 63 women who we believe will help Ohio women gain economic independence. With the help of The Matriots PAC, they will get elected to public office where they will promote a healthy economy in which women can thrive and prosper.
