First, I want to say thank you. Many of you have been with us from the beginning as we have built WEPac and the WomenElect program from the ground up. In these last 6 years we have focused on creating and refining the program, supporting the candidates who have run for office, and exploring how to export the program to new cities.
And now it is time to build the infrastructure to support what we know works. The WomenElect program is unique in that we take women that are civically engaged, have leadership skills, and show them that they can run a successful campaign. We are the very beginning of the pipeline for a number of great organizations that support women running for office in New York, and around the country.
We have big plans ahead. The rollout to Rochester has been a great success; the program has been well received publicly and we’re in the midst of our very first Rochester area class with six magnificent women. Next, we look forward to offering the program in other cities in New York, and in the future, expanding into neighboring states. But in order to do that we need a staff and a budget. Would you consider becoming a member to help us become sustainable and continue our success?
In these uncertain times, when so many are looking for a ways to get involved with organizations like ours that will ensure continued progress for our country, we need people like you to stand with us, and to grow with us.
We have devised a membership structure that enables affordable ongoing support. Your participation will dramatically increase the number of women that we can help say “YES” to running for office.
With four different levels of support, and two ways to make your donation (monthly or yearly), we have an option for everyone. And your membership will provides you with opportunities to be engaged in WomenElect’s progress, as well as play an active role in shaping our growth.

To those of you who have already signed up to be a member of WEPac and join our movement– we can not thank you enough! Your support and commitment to the WomenElect program as we strive for 50% is going to help us shatter glass ceilings for women everywhere.
