2018 election succesS
Minnesota, WE DID IT! We marched in January 2017 to declare women’s rights are human rights. We worked tirelessly for 2 solid years and refused to allow hate, bigotry, racism and injustice win.
Over the last 2 years women found or reclaimed their voice and their power, we stepped up, spoke up, took action and ran for office. And we saw when women run, women win! A record number of Native Americans, African Americans, Muslims, Latinos, immigrants, millennials and LGBT candidates ran and won, making history across the country.
Today we celebrate, we rejoice, we recover and we continue to love one another. Tomorrow, the next phase begins. If you haven’t yet, sign up for our mailing list. We are just getting started. 2019 and 2020 are coming.
#WomensWave is coming!
Congratulations to all the women elected to Congress and governorships across the country (Washington Post, 11/7/2018), including the first two Native American and the first two Muslim Congresswomen. NBC is projecting 100 women to the House alone!
In Minnesota, we congratulate US Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, Representatives Ilhan Omar, Betty McCollum and Angie Craig, and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan (and Governor Tim Walz), as well as all the many, many women elected to the MN House and Senate as well as in the local races.
