Ruth’s List, Florida’s Largest Resource Helping Elect Pro-Choice Democratic Women Launches Call Center

Center will make an estimated 1.2 million calls mobilizing voters.


Tampa, Florida

Pamela Goodman, Executive Director of Ruth’s List Florida, announced the launch of the organization’s electoral call center today, expecting to speak with 1.2 million voters in Florida between the Primary and the General Election.

Said Goodman, “We recruit train and support Democratic pro-choice women seeking state and local office.  We have 66 endorsed candidates from all across the state and the call center will communicate directly with the targeted voters who can get our candidates elected.”

“Women are fired up this cycle, running, volunteering, and donating in record numbers.  We know that talking to voters about the issues that they care about, and encouraging them to cast their ballot will result in record numbers of women elected.” Goodman continued.

The call center will operate seven days a week and reach voters inside top targeted districts.

Every endorsed candidate will be included in calls before both the Primary and General Election.
