what we believe
No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.
— Michelle Obama


All politics is local. First Ask will support the progressive movement by bringing resources to the ground and working within communities to identify future leaders and representatives. 

Equality comes from equal representation. Supporting women is both ethical and pragmatic — women are both radically underrepresented and historically better at bipartisan coalition-building. In an era of intense polarization, we need people who will reach across the aisle and push the country forward. 

We’re stronger when we work together. So we will partner with allied organizations, challenge the status quo, resist complacency, and above all — push for change.
