EMILY's List

America's preeminent organization dedicated to supporting women candidates

“Evelyn Farkas has dedicated her career to serving and protecting the interests of the American people,” EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock said. “The daughter of two Hungarian refugees, Evelyn is committed to protecting and expanding the economic opportunities that allowed her family to achieve success. Her extensive experience with the Senate Armed Services Committee and as a Deputy As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary of De­fense under President Obama make her uniquely qualified to represent New York’s 17th Congressional District in Washington. Once elected, Evelyn will be a champion for New York’s women and working families, and we are proud to stand with her.”
