WHAT IS RUTH’S LIST?

Ruth’s List is the ONLY organization in the state that recruits, trains, mentors, and elects pro-choice Democratic women at all levels.

We are building a powerhouse bench who will fight for women’s health, public education, the environment … and on and on. Founded by former Florida CFO Alex Sink, who saw the need for a bench of dynamic women all across the state. Ruth’s List operates with a small but mighty staff, along with hundreds of volunteers in key areas across the state.

WHO SUPPORTS RUTH’S LIST?

RLF is funded by donors all across Florida who believe that when women lead, our state is better. These are small business owners, large companies, activists, institutional organizations and former elected officials.

WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO?

Ruth’s List provides a concierge service to women free of cost to them. Our staff helps…

  • build their budgets
  • create campaign plans
  • train their staffers
  • teach them how to raise the money they need
  • perfect their messaging and debate prep

…and so much more!

WHY NOW?

We are in the middle of a movement, at a pivotal time in our country’s history. Women are making history all across the country. Our candidate women are doctors, lawyers, mothers, teachers, activists, millennials, and veterans and are as diverse and dynamic as the districts they represent. Women who have never run before are standing up for their communities…  and winning.

OUR STRATEGY WORKS

Ruth’s List has had 200 wins and has worked with 2,100 women. We have raised over $5 million for our candidates. We continue to be intently focused on recruiting and electing women of color, where we experienced nearly 50 percent of our 2020 victories. Our hard work continues as we move towards a better future for Florida.

OUR VICTORIES HAVE MADE “HER-STORY”

Consider a membership in RLF.  It’s an investment in leadership.

 

Our misson statement: Ruth’s List helps women run inspiring, local campaigns that WIN.
We identify, recruit, train, mentor and elect Democratic pro-choice women to all levels of office in Florida.
