Run Women Run: Endorsement Meeting (Round 2)

February 22, 2016

Since 2010, Run Women Run has endorsed more than 60 female candidates in races throughout the San Diego region — and we’re proud to say that 75% of them won! Your support made it possible.

As the 2016 election cycle ramps up, it is crucial we expand our membership base so that more women can take part in the political process, and Run Women Run can put greater energy and resources behind the candidates we endorse. This year is our opportunity to make sure women have a seat at the table where critical decisions are being made. 

We all have a network of friends, coworkers, and family members — both men and women — who share our commitment to electing pro-choice female candidates. This January, the Membership Committee of Run Women Run is counting on you to invite them to join our cause.

We’ve set an ambitious goal to ask 1,000 San Diegans to join Run Women Run this month. Who can you invite?

 If every current Run Women Run member invites just 5people to join our organization, we’ll meet and exceed our goal.

It’s easy — we’ve provided a sample message here. Just copy and paste it into a new email, replace the highlighted words with your own, and hit send! Then log your contribution HERE to be entered into a prize drawing and help us track progress toward our goal. Every email you send enters your name in the drawing one time.

 Thank you for helping to build the movement!

President, Run Women Run
