Q What can I expect to learn?
A In the Training Center, you can expect to learn the important details about running for office from the moment you first think about running all the way to Election Day. We’ll cover topics like fundraising, communications, digital strategy, press and media relations, direct voter contact, and overall campaign management.
Q Will you be adding more content to the Training Center?
A Yes! Though the majority of the content is posted now and available for review in the full version of the site, we will be periodically adding content and features and will make sure to notify users when new content has been added.
Q Didn’t users have to pay for a subscription before?
A Correct, the Training Center used to require a full subscription, however, we have now made it free for all to learn from. We believe in breaking down the barriers that have historically kept pro-choice Democratic women in office. By making the Training Center accessible for all, we hope a new generation of leaders will learn what it takes to run for office.
Q Who should use this?
A The Training Center is designed for pro-choice Democratic women. Though much of the site is geared toward first-time runners, any woman running for office will find the tools and resources in the Training Center valuable.
Q How do I get endorsed by EMILYs List?
A EMILYs List endorses pro-choice Democratic women running for office primarily at the state legislative level and above. All of our endorsed candidates go through a thorough vetting process. We do not endorse in all races. If you are interested in an EMILYs List endorsement, the first step is to sign up for Run to Win: https://secure.emilyslist.org/Join-Run-to-Win
Q What is this site?
A The EMILYs List Training Center is a website designed to teach candidates how to run for office and WIN. EMILYs List supports pro-choice Democratic women and has been training candidates to run for office – and win – offline since 1985 and now we’re bringing our decades of campaign experience online.
Q What is EMILYs List?
A EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised $850 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure operations for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
