October 11 is just twenty-six short, short days before the 2018 midterm elections--a pivotal event which will determine the course of the next two years of American politics.

Most eyes will be at the federal level, where Democrats must defend twenty-four seats in the Senate and retake the House against steep disadvantages.

Less reported on, but no less consequential, will be myriad state level races which will determine citizen's access to healthcare, their right to make their own reproductive choices, their ability to earn a living wage, and, yes, the redistricting process that will determine legislative boundaries for the next decade.

2018 is also set to be another «year of the woman,» with more than two hundred women running for seats in the House of Representatives.

EveryDistrict has identified a number of winnable statehouse races in battleground states. Of the candidates in those races, we've identified eight who are also alumni of Emerge America's candidate training programs, which prepare Democratic women to contest and win elections at all levels of government.

Please join us at 6pm on October 11 for a happy hour fundraiser supporting these eight candidates.

Delegate Elizabeth Guzman, Virginia General Assembly (VA-31)
Nicole Hobbs, Co-Founder, EveryDistrict
Laila Mohib, Expansion Director, Emerge America
