Generally, we introduce new candidates each week at Progressives Everywhere. But because today is Mother’s Day, we wanted to step back and embrace the spirit of the holiday by recognizing the incredible work and sacrifices of the women that we’ve already endorsed.
Women are rising up and running for office in record numbers, inspired by the Trump Administration’s attacks on women’s rights specifically, as well as its gross assaults on the human rights that women have led the fight for over the last century, like education, affordable healthcare, and the right to vote. If we are going to take back America this fall, it will be thanks to the women who are sacrificing so much to run for office. Many of our candidates are mothers, while others act as important mother figures as teachers and other public servants.
You can find biographical information about our entire list of candidates on Progressives Everywhere, and donate to them on our various ActBlue pages, each of which offer the ability to give to one or more particular candidates.
You can choose from women on our main slate; women fighting against the NRA; women running against religious right wing extremists; women teachers running to help fix public schools; and women running for office in New York State to help end decades of corruption.
Any donation helps. Some of these races are very local and so any money makes an outsized difference. The bigger races will see the GOP candidates benefit from huge corporate donors, so grassroots money is crucial. Donate on behalf of a mother or woman in your life. Donate in the memory of someone who helped raise you or teach you. Donate because mothers know best, and that’s why we need them in office.
