EMILY's List launches new fundraising program

With an eye towards broadening its membership and national donor base, EMILY's List has launched a new program entitled "EMpower." 

A donation of $100 to the political action committee and two $50 contributions to EMILY's List candidates earns donors membership in the program. It also gives them access to events with candidates and elected officials.   

"EMpower is a new opportunity to be a part of our movement to elect strong Democratic women; a place to network, to learn about candidates throughout the country, to collaborate and have a powerful individual and collective impact in cities, states, and in Washington," president Stephanie Schriock said in a press release.
