Our Madam Speaker

For nearly 20 years Nancy Pelosi has served in various leadership roles in the House of Representatives. As the first and only woman to serve as Speaker of the U.S. House, she showed women they can and should have a powerful voice and a seat at the table.
Under her guidance, major legislation, such as the ACA, was passed that has impacted the lives of millions of Americans. Her dedication to our country and our democracy serves, and will continue to serve, as an inspiration to all. She paved the way for countless women to choose a career in public service.

A first-generation American, Dr. Yadira Caraveo is running for the newly drawn CO-8 district. This race gives Democrats an excellent chance to pick up a much-needed House seat to protect our narrow majority.
Yadira is no stranger to hard work and challenges. She grew up in Colorado after her parents left Mexico in search of a better life for their family. She learned from her family about hard work and sacrifice. Yadira will bring that strong work ethic to Congress.

When Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-IL) was elected to Congress in 2018, she became the youngest black woman to serve in either chamber. She has worked hard for our country since day one and we need to keep her in Congress.
Donate here to reelect Rep. Underwood. We need to raise $20,000 to help her fend of extreme attacks from the GOP who want her pro-choice seat.
