Matriots 2022 Leadership Letter
Letter from Leadership
Just 5 years ago, The Matriots PAC launched a movement to elect more women in Ohio government. Treading into uncharted space, we began a grassroots effort to invest in women candidates and change the face of Ohio politics. We rallied support from neighbors, called up friends, and mobilized calls to action. Our communities responded.
Through reliance on research and data, we learned that women candidates often don’t raise as much money as men for their campaigns and also that women give less to political campaigns. However, we knew we could change that with the help of like-minded women and men throughout the state.
The year 2021 was like no other. It reinforced the imperative of democracy and the importance of equal representation. And through it all, our members helped us endorse and invest in more women than ever across Ohio. These women candidates brought their vision and values to office, seeking to move from political rancor to cooperative work. Together, we’re electing more women to office who will support an economy where women from all walks of life can thrive and prosper.
