Washington, D.C., USA

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, is searching for
a Direct Marketing Manager to join our Marketing, Development team. EMILY’s
List has raised over $600 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women
candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's
List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country
and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting
strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, and
turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have
helped elect 150 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and nearly

dollars and launched a record independent expenditure campaign. We helped
elect 34 new women to the House, including 24 red-to-blue victories; enough
seats to have delivered the U.S. House majority alone. Since the 2016 election,
more than 40,000 women have reached out to EMILY's List about running for
office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state and
national offices.
