What is Supermajority?
Founded by a team of women who have been organizing for decades, Supermajority is a membership-based home for women’s activism that affirms and builds women’s power, training and mobilizing a community of all ages, races, and backgrounds to become the most effective advocates they can be and build a more equitable future for ALL women.
Theory of change
Together, we're unstoppable
Women are on the cusp of becoming the most powerful force in America. If we can build women’s collective power in this moment and over the long term, we can lift up an agenda that addresses our needs, hold candidates and elected officials accountable, and change the direction of this country for good.
Women are already the supermajority of this country, and we’re already seeing what happens when women mobilize:
- 1 in 5 Americans has participated in a march or protest since 2016. The biggest issue driving these actions is support for women’s rights.
- Women donated $100 million more to campaigns and causes in 2018 than they did in 2016.
- We’ve been the majority of voters in every national election since 1964. In 2018, women helped elect a Congress with a record-breaking 127 women members.
Building the future
Tired of our priorities being sidelined as “women’s issues,” our founders, Cecile Richards, Alicia Garza, and Ai-jen Poo decided that if they connected women of all races, geographies, and backgrounds together in solidarity to organize for their shared values, women could become a powerful force who could change the direction of this country—and on April 29, 2019, Supermajority was launched to do just that.
Surprise (or not?):
Women’s problems didn’t begin on November 9, 2016. For decades, women have been sidelined as a special interest group, rather than treated as what we are: the majority of people and voters in this country.
We believe in and are organizing for a world where:
Women’s equity is a given.
The humanity, dignity, and equality of all people is enshrined.
Everyone has a chance to participate, lead, and make their voice heard.
Everyone can decide whether and when to have children, to live in safe communities, and to provide and care for their loved ones.
All people can have their basic human needs satisfied, including universal health care, public education, a living wage, a clean environment, and affordable housing.
No matter your race, immigration status, religion, ability, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity, you have a chance to thrive and succeed.
