Friends — After a series of historic wins across the country in 2020, Democrats are now making history again in state legislatures across the nation.
Not only will our statehouses now look more like the people they represent, thanks to the Democrats we just elected, but the legislators leading those chambers will reflect the diversity of America, too.
From the youngest state House speaker in the country to the first woman serving as Pennsylvania House minority leader, to the first person of color to fill a leadership role in the Connecticut House, to Black lawmakers leading both Democratic caucuses in Georgia, to the first woman and first openly gay person to become Senate President Pro Tempore in Vermont – these Democrats are making history and breaking barriers.

Democratic supporters should be immensely proud of who’s leading our state legislatures.
Time and time again, we’ve seen Democrats elect more diverse lawmakers and propel more diverse legislators into top leadership positions than Republicans: Democrats have elevated more than three times as many women, almost ten times as many people of color, and many more LGBTQ legislators to lead their states.
Those aren’t just numbers: These lawmakers who are leading caucuses show that Democrats truly care about representing everyone in the country – and to continue to make that possible, state Democrats need your help.
Today, chip in to help elect state Democrats and make state legislatures look like the people they represent >>
