Off the Sidelines provides supporters with information on candidates running for Senate and House and offers candidates a platform to lift up their voices and power their campaigns. Kirsten uses her platform and Off the Sidelines to elevate the issues that affect women, families and marginalized communities, including: institutional racism, reproductive rights, mental health, disability rights, climate change & environmental justice, paid leave, getting money out of politics, and trans/LGBTQ rights.

My advice to women is this: Don’t wait for a white knight in Washington. You will wait forever.

Since its launch, Off the Sidelines PAC has directly raised $10 million for women candidates across the country and inspired women’s giving circles around the country, which have raised an additional $15 million for women candidates.

During the 2020 cycle, Off the Sidelines supported more than 100 congressional campaigns and raised more than $2.5 million for candidates running for office.

Off The Sidelines is @SenGillibrand’s movement to help women run for office—and win.
