“I thought if I could get a seat at the table, I could make a difference.”
Yesterday, 43 Matriots-endorsed candidates won their races and claimed their seat at the tables where policies and legislation are written. They believe in their power to create change and they are fiercely committed to improving the lives of their communities and schools.
They did what women do – they did the work. Each and every candidate rolled up her sleeves and hit the campaign trail determined to bring new voices to the halls of power. Together, we are on a journey to normalize what it means to be a woman running for office and build a bench of women who will create a better future.
Thank you to all our members who helped make this happen. Last night 60% of our candidates won their races, and it could not have been done without them. Their investment in women candidates made a difference in this election and will continue to make a difference for many more endorsed candidates in 2020.
