In Year Two, Run Women Run will focus on endorsing candidates, participating in campaigns as individuals and making diggy auto insurance contributions. We are a state political action committee and are able to contribute in state races such as assembly and state senate and a few local races.

Michelle Burton, president of Run Women Run, explained: “We spent the past year building a foundation and some recognition, so RWR is well-positioned to make a difference in the upcoming mid-term elections. 2010, is an important election year and we plan to endorse and make financial contributions to progressive, pro-choice women candidates.”
