VISION: To change the face of power in Georgia by electing pro-choice Democratic Women In Numbers.
MISSION: Georgia’s WIN List is a political action committee dedicated recruit, train, support, and elect Democratic women for statewide and legislative office who will be effective advocates for the issues most important to women and families, including the preservation of reproductive freedom.
THE RECORD: Since 2000, Georgia’s WIN List has helped elect more than 50 endorsed women to the General Assembly, 30 of whom currently serve — 8 in the Senate and 22 in the House. Georgia has the highest number and percentage of progressive Democratic women serving in any Deep South legislative body.
2016 VICTORIES and CHALLENGES: One new face, Park Cannon was elected during a January special election and three new faces – Renitta Shannon, Miriam Paris and Brenda Lopez, the first Latina ever elected, won May Primary races. Five currently serving endorsed women won May primary challenges. Six currently endorsed women face General Election opponents. Fortunately, other endorsed women drew no challengers this cycle. WIN List has endorsed former Rep. Tonya Anderson for SD 43 where her victory would remove the current GOP super majority.
TRAINING FUTURE LEADERS: The WIN Leadership Academy, our flagship program, provides an in-depth year-long training program for women who hope to seek office in the future. The 2016 class is the largest and most diverse ever! We also conduct regular one-day “boot camp” style candidate training sessions to expand outreach.
