The Pledgemaker Distinctions
Young women across the country are rising up to take ownership for our democracy and our future. Platform is launching our Pledgemaker Distinction series that will help us make informed decisions as we head into the voting booths and connect us to lawmakers who will pledge to advance necessary legislation.
These Distinctions are based on the alignment between elected officials or candidates and the agenda we created at our 2018 National Convention. We are asking lawmakers and candidates to take the pledge below to pursue solutions to the listed issues. We are asking lawmakers and candidates to take the pledge that they will listen to our voices and work with us as partners in progress.
This distinction does not equate to an endorsement but rather signifies that lawmakers or candidates have completed our questionnaire and made the Platform Pledge.
✓ I pledge to make space for young women-identified, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and femme voices in the rooms where decisions about their bodies, lives, and futures are made.
