December 2021    

​​Dear ReflectUS Community,

Happy Holidays!

2021 has been filled with historical moments and significant wins for women across the country. The ReflectUS Coalition has been at the frontlines paving the way for women to succeed in political leadership at every level of government.

Did you know that ReflectUS hosted over 60 hours of training events, published 15 learning resources and launched a national working group of movement leaders and field experts? Additionally, in 2021, the ReflectUS Coalition served over 200,000 women, and we don’t plan to slow down in 2022!

As the year comes to an end, I'd like to invite you to support the ReflectUS Coalition by joining the ReflectUS Giving Circle.

This month, we're highlighting an exciting new report from our Coalition member, Higher Heights Leadership Fund and the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP). The report, Reach Higher: Black Women In American Politics 2021, is a deep analysis of the powerful force Black women bring to the American political system, and highlights their growing political power.

Higher Heights Leadership Fund and the Center for American Women in Politics Latest Report: “Reach Higher: Black Women In American Politics 2021

Higher Heights Leadership Fund and the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP), a unit of the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University, released a new report, Reaching Higher: Black Women in American Politics 2021. This update outlines the status of Black women in American politics as of fall 2021 and provides an outlook for the 2022 election, which offers an immediate occasion for harnessing Black women’s political power both at the ballot box as voters and on the ballot as candidates.

This issue brief discusses the cycle of incumbency that protects men’s political power and why it must be dismantled to eliminate the roadblocks preventing women from serving in elected office.
