Conversation with Class of 2018 Matriots Endorsed Candidates

On January 16, we convened our 2018 cohort of endorsed candidates for a working dinner with our board of directors and endorsement committee.  We discussed how The Matriots was helpful last year and how we can improve our support of women candidates moving forward. It was incredibly stimulating and informative to have so many of our 2018 candidates–-incumbents and future challengers; women in statewide, county and local office—gather together to offer us their feedback. And, as exciting, to support each other moving forward.

This is how we will succeed: by lifting each other up.

Check out some of our favorite pictures from the event below and a special thank you to Dara Pizzuti, who helped facilitate this fantastic event.
