By the end of this year, half of the states in the United States will effectively outlaw abortion -- And Mitch McConnell is warning if he retakes power a national ban is coming. It has NEVER been more important to elect pro-choice, pro-science Democratic women to office at ALL levels. Will you consider donating to elect pro-choice scientists to the House, Senate, Governorships, and state legislatures across the country?
Melanie Stansbury started her career teaching ecology as an instructor in New Mexico before serving in the Obama administration on the Council on Environmental Quality and working in the Senate as a staffer on the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
In 2018, during her first run for office, she defeated a GOP incumbent in a race Democrats didn’t even consider competitive, earning a seat in the New Mexico House of Representatives.
After Joe Biden selected then-Rep. Deb Haaland to be his Interior Secretary, Melanie ran in the highly anticipated special election to keep her seat in Democratic hands. We were proud to be the first national organization to endorse Melanie in the primary and work alongside her to deliver a stunning special election victory where she outperformed President Joe Biden in a race that drew international attention.
Melanie now serves on the House Science Committee as well as the Committee on Natural Resources: Donate if you can and let’s help Melanie win a full term in the House so she can continue to provide her expertise on the environment — an issue that not only impacts people in her district, but people across our country.
