Today the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced that Senators Booker, Hirono and Padilla will co-chair the DSCC’s Majority Rising Leadership Council for the 2022 campaign cycle.
The current Senate is the most diverse in history, and the DSCC’s Majority Rising Leadership Council (previously known as the 2044 Leadership Council) serves to celebrate and build upon this milestone by engaging Democrats and diverse communities in support of candidates — as well as striving to make the Senate more reflective of America’s demographic makeup.
This cycle, the DSCC and the Majority Rising Leadership Council are committed to creating a pipeline of diverse staff at all levels of campaigns; recruiting and connecting with a diverse class of political talent to support the strongest Democratic candidates across the country; and providing opportunities for supporters who are focused on increasing engagement with communities of color to work with the DSCC.
“The diversity of the Democratic Party is our strength, and Senators Booker, Hirono and Padilla will help ensure our campaigns have the expertise and resources they need to engage the communities that power our victories. I look forward to working with them through the DSCC’s Majority Rising Leadership Council to defend and expand our majority — and elect a Senate that truly reflects all of America,” said DSCC Chair Sen. Gary Peters.
“Campaigns and candidates need thoughtful and purposeful outreach to communities of color — and a plan to reach every voter they need to win. I’m excited to work with the DSCC and the Majority Rising Leadership Council to help our campaigns achieve these critical goals this cycle, and support the next generation of Democratic talent and leadership,” said Senator Cory Booker.
“Electing more Democrats means the Senate will look more like America and reflect the values of every community in our country. The work of the DSCC’s Majority Rising Leadership Council will be vital as we strive towards this important goal for our country’s progress,” said Senator Mazie Hirono.
“I look forward to working with the DSCC’s Majority Rising Leadership Council to help Democratic Senate campaigns build smart programs that reach the diverse communities that form the backbone of our party. Integrating inclusive strategies into every level of our campaigns is critical to ensuring our Democratic majority can keep delivering for the American people,” said Senator Alex Padilla.
