In the powerful, new video Women Rising, eight women veterans and federal agents who are running for office for the very first time, have come together to share their stories of service, and encourage viewers to serve America by voting in the midterm elections this November.
The women featured have served in the U.S. Military and CIA and include: Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria from Virginia, Chrissy Houlahan from Pennsylvania, Gina Ortiz Jones and MJ Hegar from Texas, Amy McGrath from Kentucky, Mikie Sherrill from New Jersey, and Elissa Slotkin from Michigan.
The video was released by Serve America PAC and executive-produced by author, producer and activist Laurie David. “They have already served their country in the most prestigious and courageous way, they have already sworn to uphold the constitution of the United States and now they are choosing once again to serve America,” Laurie said in a press release. “We all have an obligation too to serve democracy and that is to vote.”
