Netroots Nation meant a lot to the Women’s Campaign Forum this year because of you.
You joined hundreds of other attendees in pledging to support pro-choice women leaders in government. You cheered our endorsed-candidates at our breakfast. You celebrated your own political ambitions at our recruitment training. You shared your frustration with misogyny in the media at our panel.
Quite simply, you made this year’s Netroots Nation the best conference yet.
You and I know that at times it feels like the cards are stacked against us; that the challenges we face in achieving representation for women in government feel insurmountable. Just last year, we saw the first backslide in women’s representation in government in over 30 years.
For those reasons and more, your support at Netroots means a lot to WCF. That’s why we created this video of WCF’s time at Netroots to capture your amazing support for pro-choice women in government.
I hope you enjoy our video, and that it means as much to you as it does to me. After you’ve viewed it, I encourage you to share it. And just in case you have more love to give, you can visit our Netroots page to take more actions in support of WCF.
In the U.S., women are 51% of the population, yet only 17% of Congress. We have a long way to go. But because of your support, we are closer to getting there.
