Our partners at Elect Black Women PAC released 11 new endorsements last week. 

Let’s show them the power of WomenCount donors. Chip in $5 or more to our EBW slate and help kick off their campaigns with a big crowdfunding surge.

With your help we have raised over $40,000 this cycle for EBW candidates. Each email blast features a new set of endorsements and candidates, and the slate total just continues to grow!

The new candidates are: 

  • Tina McKinnor, CA Assembly, 62: This is an opportunity to replace a moderate with a progressive in a very blue, open seat.
  • Tamiza Hockenhull, CA Superior Court Judge, Alameda County: This is an open seat and Tamiza is running unchallenged.
  • *Michele Rayner, US House, FL 13: This is the open seat vacated by Charlie Crist. Michele is the first Black, queer woman elected to the Florida state House.
  • Chakena D. Perry, Chicago Metropolitan Water Reclamation District: Gov. Pritzker appointed Chakena earlier this year. She’s running for a full term.
  • Pamela Stevenson, KY House, 43: Pamela is a first-term state House incumbent who—so far—has successfully avoided a serious primary challenge.
  • *Vivian Birchall, MA House, 14: This solidly blue seat is open, and Vivian would be the first person of color to occupy it.
  • Chiquita Jackson, MD House, 22: This is a multi-member district; Chiquita is challenging three incumbent Democrats.
  • Bernice Mireku-North, MD State’s Attorney, Montgomery County: Bernice is running as a reformer against an incumbent (male) Democrat.
  • Vernetta Alston, NC House, 29: Vernetta is a first-term incumbent who is currently running unchallenged.
  • *Kaegan Mays-Williams, NY Senate, 21: Kaegan is running against an established incumbent to be the first Black, gay woman in the NY state Senate.
  • Rochelle Culbreath, PA House, 54: This is a brand-new state legislative district. Her main opponent is a former (male) judge. 

*Denotes a historic first

With Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson set to be confirmed by Friday, it’s another historic week for Black women and our country.
