Georgia’s WIN List Plans “Stand With WINning Women” Rally To Celebrate 36 Endorsed Women Candidates
“Stand With WINning Women” event will celebrate WIN List’s record-setting slate of 36 endorsed women, the diversity of women running, and the future of Georgia.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2018 – As the number of women candidates running for office breaks records nationwide, Georgia’s WINList, the state’s leading Political Action Committee (PAC) focused on electing Democratic women, announces “Stand With WINning Women” – a historic campaign rally featuring the organization’s record-setting slate of 36 endorsed women.
The “Stand With WINning Women” rally is scheduled the evening of September 25th at The Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta. The festive event celebrates the historic first of women nominees at the top of Georgia’s ticket: Stacey Abrams for Governor and Sarah Riggs Amico for Lt. Governor; as well as record-setting numbers of truly diverse women candidates for November’s mid-term election cycle who seek legislative seats long held by Republicans.
Honorary co-chairs for the event are former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and Stacey Evans, former State Representative for House District 42 who also served as WIN List Board Chair from 2008-09.
Several of the candidates will address the crowd of avid supporters. Candidate tables staffed by campaign volunteers will offer literature or yard signs and recruit volunteers to make calls, write postcards, or knock on doors. Voter registration information and applications for absentee ballots will also be available.
“Our slate of women is the most highly qualified and diverse Georgia has ever seen,” said Anna Beck, WIN List Board Chair. “We are thrilled to bring most of these courageous women under one roof for an evening of celebration and support. During the evening, WIN List will present checks which total the most generous candidate contributions of our 18-year history. Having women at the top of the Democratic ticket together with a record-setting number of diverse legislative candidates who more closely represent the citizens of the districts they hope to represent fulfills the two-decade-old dream of our visionary founders to ‘Change the Face of Power In Georgia’.”
Beck says the 2018 election cycle is a historic opportunity for women to make huge strides towards equality of representation in the “rooms where it happens” under Georgia’s Gold Dome. “We know all who attend will be energized to become a part of the grassroots efforts creating Georgia’s Blue Wave in November,” she said. “We Believe women will WIN in record-setting numbers in November.”
At Georgia’s WIN List, WE BELIEVE Stacey Abrams can shatter Georgia’s glass ceiling because our WINning women are on a WINning streak.
