VRLA WOMEN TO WATCH 2024

We are stepping up

Women lawmakers pass more legislation, deliver more resources to their constituencies, and are more active advocates for their communities’ needs.
Watch this page as races heat up across the country. And keep checking back to find women running in your area who will uphold the values that hang in the balance.

Spotlight on our Run/51 States

Our strategic goal is to elect women to at least 51% of state legislative seats across the country, to truly reflect the people they serve. VRLA has started with deep investments in these states to recruit, train, and support women, so we can achieve that goal.

States are where the most important policy decisions of our time are being made. Electing feminist, anti-racist, pro-democracy women is crucial to enacting the progressive change we need.
