On the D.C. stop of their joint cross-country bus tour that launched Sept. 15 in Atlanta, the Supermajority Education Fund — dedicated to research and education about women’s power, awareness, visibility, and civic participation — continued Thursday to roll out its latest vision for how women will live, work and rise together.

Thursday’s stop featured Supermajority Education Fund co-founders Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, along with Jess Morales Rocketto, political director for National Domestic Workers Alliance, freshmen Congress members Ilhan Omar, Angie Craig, Sharice Davids, Veronica Escobar and others who participated in a roundtable about the importance of harnessing the energy of women to create lasting change.

The northwest DC-based organization will also lead the rallying cry for millions of women while anchoring its work influencing the public debate ahead of 2020.

Throughout the tour, Supermajority will host several Democratic presidential candidates at stops that turn typical voter forums on their head: instead of candidates speaking to women, women will speak to the candidates about the issues affecting their lives.

Presidential candidates, including former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar, and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, will participate in events that will also be live streamed to the Supermajority and Pantsuit Nation communities across the U.S.
