Supermajority Education Fund

About Supermajority
Women are on the cusp of becoming the most powerful force in America. But to fundamentally transform this country, we need to pull together the millions of women who are already engaged and amplify and expand their civic engagement. Supermajority Education Fund is building women’s power across the country by training and mobilizing a multiracial, intergenerational community who will lead the fight for women’s equality. We provide women with the tools, resources, and information they need to channel the energy and activism of this moment and build it into a long-term movement for change.

Since our founding in April 2019, Supermajority Education Fund and our related 501(c)(4) organization, Supermajority, have reached millions of women through in-person conversations and online outreach. In August 2019, more than 75,000 people from all 50 states completed our Women’s Poll, which led to the creation of the Majority Rules, a set of values to help us build the country we deserve. 

In 2020, we ran the country’s largest woman-to-woman voter engagement program by offering strategic digital tools, training, and information to women and allies around the country. In 2021, we continued the work of engaging and mobilizing women across the country, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and its disproportionate impact on women, specifically women of color. Then, in 2022, the organization supported the mobilization of millions of women in the midterms, helping to shift the course of the election.
