Arizona Women Leaders to Sound the Alarm at Press Conference October 12:

Trump and McCain a Danger to Women

Women Leaders in Arizona join effort to turn out women’s votes for Hillary Clinton for President and Ann Kirkpatrick for U.S. Senate

 

Women have the power to determine the outcome of the presidential and U.S. Senate race in Arizona. A coalition of women leaders has come together under the banner of She Wins, We Win campaign to announce plans for mobilizing the largest women’s vote in history to move forward progress for women.

 

The unprecedented coalition of women leaders is working to make sure voters know what is at stake in both the Presidential and U.S. Senate race in Arizona, and to sound the alarm on the dangers a Trump presidency would pose to women. The outcome of this election will determine our nation’s policies impacting women’s rights for the next 40 years: the make-up of the Supreme Court; access to reproductive healthcare including abortion and birth control; pay equality; paid family and medical leave; passage of the Equal Rights Amendment; civil rights; LGBT rights; the ability of our nation to deal with climate change; immigration reform; and reducing violence including sexual assault and gun violence.
