"It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan." - Eleanor Roosevelt

What is The Baker Project?

The Baker Project is recruiting pro-choice Democratic women for State Senate, providing the technical assistance to get on the ballot and establish their campaigns.

We need 1 seat to flip the State Senate. We have 12 Democratic women running with the support of the Baker Project.

The path to Democratic victories and a solid Democratic majority in the State Senate starts with these 12 women candidates.

A special initiative of Eleanor’s Legacy, the Baker Project is dedicated to Martha Baker, a founding director of Eleanor’s Legacy, and to Constance Baker Motley, the first African-American woman elected to the New York State Senate.
