Save the date and join Senator Tammy Baldwin and Special Guests EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock and Jason Kander at her 10th annual BBQ. The event is going to be on Sunday, July 30 from 2:00pm – 5:00pm at Quivey’s Grove.
Stephanie Schriock took charge in 2010, since EMILY’s List has seen unprecedented growth, helped elect record numbers of women to the House and Senate, and recruited and trained hundreds of pro-choice Democratic women to run for office, including Senator Elizabeth Warren, who Stephanie personally recruited to run. Of the more than $500 million the organization has raised to support women candidates since its founding in 1985, more than half has been raised under Stephanie’s leadership — and EMILY’s List is now more than five million members strong (and counting). Today, in addition to serving as president of EMILY’s List, Stephanie is also the president of American Women, a research organization affiliated with EMILY’s List, which seeks to increase public awareness of the issues impacting women and families. Stephanie was named by ELLE Magazine to its “10 Most Powerful Women in Washington” list, alongside Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in 2015.
Jason Kander was elected as Missouri’s Secretary of State and became the first millennial elected to statewide office. Before being elected, Jason served as a military intelligence officer where he served a tour in Afghanistan, then as a leadership instructor in the Missouri Army National Guard’s Officer Candidate School. In 2016, Jason ran for the U.S. Senate and his campaign was bolstered by his viral ad that showed him assembling a rifle blindfolded while making the case for expanded background checks. Jason lost by one of the closest margins in the country, over performing the presidential ticket by nearly 16 points. In February 2017, Jason started Let America Vote to fight back against proposals across the country that make it harder for eligible voters to exercise their constitutional right to cast a ballot.
