“Historic, Earliest Endorsement for a Presidential Reelection Campaign”
Washington, D.C.–NOW PAC, the member-supported political action committee of the National Organization for Women (NOW), announced today it is endorsing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for reelection in 2024.
“President Biden and Vice President Harris fought for women’s equality and rights long before they walked into the White House on January 20, 2021,” said Christian F. Nunes, NOW PAC Chairwoman/NOW National President. “This is our earliest endorsement for a presidential reelection campaign because the Biden-Harris administration has and continues to place women’s issues at the forefront, not through words but through actions.”
During its first term, the Biden-Harris administration created the Gender Policy Council, assembled an incredibly diverse and qualified Cabinet, pushed for codifying Roe and ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment, and nominated the first Black woman for Supreme Court Justice.
“Women, especially women of color, are the backbone of our nation’s democracy,” said Nunes.” Women are not going to let the extremists continue on their path of destruction to tear our lives apart. The Biden-Harris administration is the firewall against these horrible attempts to roll back our basic rights to abortion, contraception, and healthcare access to LGBTQ+ protection to pay parity and equity.”
“More than 100,000 members and supporters comprise the NOW PAC – the oldest and largest grassroots movement in the U.S.,” said Nunes. “We are organizing in every city and town and everywhere in between across the country to mobilize and turn out voters to return President Biden and Vice President Harris to the White House.”
“While every election is consequential, the 2024 election will make or break our democracy,” said Nunes “And as always, women will be on the right side of history because we will continue to break feminist turnout records. We have no choice because all of our rights are on the line.”
NOW PAC is the political arm of NOW, the largest grassroots feminist organization in the country, with hundreds of chapters and thousands of supporters, members, and activists in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. For the past 45 years, NOW’s aggressive grassroots organizing and early support for feminist candidates have made a difference in critical elections. NOW PAC is funded solely by its grassroots membership and evaluates federal candidates on their record on the core issues of NOW: constitutional equality, ending violence against women, economic justice, LGBTQIA+ justice, racial justice, and reproductive justice.
