"Ruth's List Florida is fast becoming a political force."

--Alex Sink, Former Florida CFO & Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee


Ruth's List Florida is dedicated to building a progressive Florida by recruiting and assisting pro-choice Democratic women to successfully run for public office in Tallahassee, in county commissions, in city councils, and in other key positions around Florida.

Inspired and supported by EMILY’s List and top Democratic women leaders in Florida, Ruth’s List was founded in April 2008. 

In the 6 years that Ruth's List has been working, we have helped elect 30 women to office, raised more than $500,000 for our endorsed candidates, and trained more than 500 women to run for office in Florida.
