Recently, we launched the “Who Leads Us?” campaign on behalf the Women Donors Network, New Organizing Institute, Rutgers University and TargetSmart. The study focused on the 42,000 elected officials who represent America from the county level to Congress along race and gender lines.
The results are staggering. Here are the toplines:
71% of elected officials are men, 90% are white, and 65% are white men.
White men are 31% of the U.S. population but hold 65% of all elected office.
White men have 8 times as much political power as women of color.
