After the 2016 election, women all over the United States were on fire about the rollback of our freedoms. Supermajority co-founders Cecile Richards, Ai-jen Poo, and Alicia Garza were being stopped on the streets by women asking what they could do next. Together, the co-founders wanted to find the answer to one question: What could women do to build the world we deserved? So in 2017, they launched Supermajority, an organization focused on making women the most feared and revered voting bloc in the country so the values we hold and the issues we care about are finally front and center.
In 2019, Cecile, Ai-jen, and Alicia partnered with trailblazing activists Deirdre Schifeling, Jess Morales Rocketto, and Katherine Grainger to launch Supermajority Ed Fund, a sister organization dedicated to mission through research, education, and development programs that support women in growing their leadership skills. That year, the co-founders took to the road for a nationwide bus tour to meet with women across the country to discuss their vision for the future. From those conversations, we created our values-based agenda called the Majority Rules.
Today, we’re a community of 4 million strong, made up of women of all backgrounds, races, and ages who are ready to build the progressive women’s voting bloc and create a future where all people are truly equal.
Our vision is
Supermajority centers the lived experiences and liberation of all women. We believe that building the progressive women’s voting bloc is our best chance at ensuring all people who have been marginalized due to their gender—including trans women, cisgender women, gender nonbinary people, and trans men—are truly equal. If you believe in the Majority Rules and are ready for a future where equality is a reality, then you are a part of the supermajority.
