EMILY’s List Founder talk with Rep. Sydney Batch

Join us for a conversation on Building Women’s Electoral Power with special guest Ellen Malcolm, Founder of EMILY’s List, in support of Representative Sydney Batch (NC-37). This event is moderated by Gaby Goldstein, Co-Founder of Sister District Project.

RSVP here for Zoom link

Please note that the time for this event has been changed to 5:00pm Pacific.

The Founder and Board Chair of EMILY’s List, Ellen Malcolm, will discuss how and why we must build electoral power for women, a conversation with our candidate Sydney Batch moderated by Gaby Goldstein, Sister District Co-Founder and Head of Political Policy and Strategy.

In just two years in office, Sydney Batch has become a rising star in North Carolina, a state which could become our 16th Democratic Trifecta in November.

Pete Buttigieg and Eric Holder have already endorsed Sydney personally. Now the Founder of EMILY’s List, Ellen Malcolm, is not only endorsing her, but is hosting a fundraiser for Sydney Batch on Monday, June 29, 3pm PDT, and you are invited.

RSVP HERE

We’re asking for a $35 per person donation to attend this event. The entire donation will go to Sydney Batch’s campaign. You can support Sydney Batch while listening to an interesting and important conversation between three extraordinary women.

Learn how we can and must build electoral power for women from, perhaps, the country’s foremost authority on the subject, Ellen Malcolm.

Before Ellen Malcolm founded EMILY’s List 30 years ago, no Democratic woman had ever been elected to the Senate in her own right. In 1985, Ellen and a small group of friends decided to change that by developing a new political strategy. To give women candidates credibility and the resources to win, they decided to raise early money and called their organization EMILY’s List (Early Money Is Like Yeast, it “makes the dough rise”). They created a new concept in political fundraising — a donor network that encouraged members to contribute to the candidates EMILY’s List recommended.

EMILY’s List has helped elect 26 pro-choice Democratic women to the U.S. Senate, 150 to the U.S. House of Representatives, 16 governors, and nearly 1,100 women to state and local office. They’ve trained nearly 10,000 women to run for office. And since 1985, they’ve raised more than $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women to office.

Invite all your friends and contacts – we have room on Zoom for everyone.

We look forward to being with you on June 29th!
