Federal PAC

Who We Are

 

Represent! is dedicated to electing more Democratic women to U.S. Senate seats and Governors’ offices, but more importantly we are building a movement in Philadelphia.  Too often, women are ignored as players in campaign fundraising, and we aim to foster an environment in which women are getting the credit for this valuable work. Represent! is building a community of women giving resources to electing other women nationwide. 

 

No other group in Pennsylvania is focused solely on aggregating the financial influence of women throughout the state to help elect and protect women officeholders throughout the country. 

 

What We Do

Represent! is a registered Political Action Committee based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania made up of members committed to seeing more Democratic women in elected office. 

 

Represent! hosts a series of private events throughout the year for Democratic women candidates in highly competitive races.  Each event raises at least $20,000 for the candidate(s) in attendance.  Our goal in the inaugural year is to raise at least $80,000 for visiting candidates.

 

Why We Do It

The U.S.  is ranked 98th in the world for the percentage of women in the national legislature - just behind Kenya and Indonesia.  There are 14 democratic women in the Senate and just six in Governors’ seats.  True Democracy is one that is representative of the people and their beliefs.  The fact that 50% of the population is represented by only 20% in the Senate and 12% in Governors’ offices is unacceptable. 

 

When women come together to fund candidates, their aggregate support exponentially increases their influence.  Women in this group will serve as bundlers as well as donors to change the perception of candidates and groups such as the DGA and DSCC.
