WASHINGTON – Today the RNC is holding our “Taking Back the Future” Women’s Summit in Washington, DC, as a part of the RNC’s initiative to engage more women voters and activists in 2014 and beyond.
Women from around the country will attend the event and participate in sessions with guest speakers and panelists focusing on campaign strategy. Throughout the summit, attendees will learn tools that they can use to share a positive Republican message in their communities. The RNC Co-Chairman, Sharon Day, along with other keynote speakers including House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers, will emphasize the importance of GOP women activists’ involvement in the political process and give an in-depth look at communications techniques, survey and research information, and grassroots organizing strategies.
“I am thrilled to host the ‘Taking Back the Future Women’s Summit’ today in our nation’s capital, which will give more Republican women the tools they need to successfully bring the Republican message into their communities,” Co-Chairman Day said. “It is my goal to recruit, mobilize, and equip women to be spokespeople for the party where they live and work, so they can connect more women voters with the party. I think the Women’s Summit will provide attendees with the resources they will need to help the GOP be successful in November.”
Part of the training will include the 14 in ‘14 program that we’ve started in 25 counties in targeted districts and states for the midterm elections.
The “14 in ‘14” initiative is about mobilizing volunteers to commit 30 minutes a week during the 14 weeks leading up to the November election. Volunteers will engage women in 25 key counties with high numbers of independent and “swing” women voters. “14 in ‘14” will train these volunteers to recruit other women, identify voters, support other get-out-the-vote efforts, and be Republican messengers in their communities.
