Let’s build a democracy that truly represents all of us.

About Eleanor’s Legacy

We take action every day to build a democracy that truly represents all of us. We recruit, train and fund pro-choice Democratic women candidates across New York at the state and local level.

Since 2001, the Eleanor’s Legacy board of directors and its members have worked together on the mission to build a new generation of pro-choice Democratic women candidates, informed voters, and political activists throughout New York State.

We are inspired by the dynamic legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt, one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, who dedicated her life to expanding the role of women in politics and government. As she famously said, “Democracy is not about words, but action.”

Eleanor’s Legacy increases women’s participation in New York Democratic politics by:

  • Raising funds to elect women to state and local offices
  • Providing political training and leadership development
  • Growing a statewide network of women community leaders, elected officials, and grassroots activists
