“I’m running for Congress because I believe this moment in history requires courageous people to stand up and fight to restore our voice in Washington.” – Lauren Underwood for Congress (IL-14)

Primary season is here and Black women candidates are off to the races!  In fact, there are more Black women running for local, state, and federal elections than ever before. This is just one great reason to participate in the 2018 midterms.

With 435 seats in the House of Representatives, a third of the Senate, 36 governorships, and many state legislature seats up for grabs this fall, there’s a lot at stake!
