Georgia's Win List Looks To Elect Women To Office In Georgia

Georgia's Win List

Join Kiplyn Primus for The Local Take on the WCLK Public Affairs Block Saturday morning at 7am before Tavis Smiley. Her guest Saturday is Adrienne White. White is Chair of Georgia's Win List. This is a political action committee dedicated to changing the face of power in Georgia by recruiting and training women to seek political office.

Often women don't run for office due to lack of confidence or funding. Georgia's Win List trains women to take on the rigors of elected office. They provide information on volunteer opportunities and teach women to build their electoral base. Although women make up 51% of our state's population, they make up less than 25% of our state's elected representatives. Georgia has never had a woman senator or governor.  Adrienne speaks with us about elected offices as well as appointed offices and provides information that can impact the balance of power in our state.
