how we amplify her

While there are numerous important organizations working to recruit and train women candidates, there is little financial and logistical support for women candidates while they’re actually running. At the same time, in New York City, Democrats outnumber Republicans 7 to 1, making primaries critical in determining whether a woman candidate will advance or not.

To support women running for office, Amplify Her recruits committed volunteers, registers new voters and builds the power of those who are often neglected by status quo politics. With a grassroots approach to campaigning and fundraising, Amplify Her is working to change the face of politics—so it looks like us.

**Trans women are women. We support progressive cis and trans women running for office in New York, and we welcome trans men, gender nonconforming and non-binary folx to become Amplify Her members. Please let us know if you have suggestions for how we can improve our language or practices to be more inclusive and welcoming.
