The campaign declares that to all the people who say “our ambition is a bad look: Face it. Women are the most powerful force in America. We are the majority of people and voters in this country and we will determine the outcome of this election.”
Argent x Supermajority states, “We’re celebrating our ambition and our awesome civic power loudly and proudly with a limited-edition bright pink suit and pin pack—with 10% of sales benefiting Supermajority’s tireless efforts to build a powerful, diverse, women-led future where we are truly equal.”
Amy Schumer recently tweeted, “Women will decide this election. We’re joining our friends at @Supermajority, @humanrightscampaign, @weareultraviolet, @WomansMarch & other sibling organizations across the country to show the world #WomenAreVoting.”

Over the weekend Amy Schumer took part in a vigil for George Floyd at Boston Public Garden.
Before the event the comic made the following post on Instagram:
Number 12 #djhenry was his name. this 20 year old man, son, brother, friend, student, athlete at Pace University was stolen from his lovely family when he was murdered by Officer Aaron Hess. The other officer on the scene fired his service weapon for the first time in decades at Officer Hess, because he was the only threat on the scene. Hess shot and killed this unarmed 20 year old black man. His mother @angellahenry12 his father @danroyhenryart his sister @ammberhenry and his brother
@kylejoshuaofficial keep his memory alive and fight for justice everyday. Please sign the petition to reopen his case in my bio and donate to the @djhenrydreamfund . Originally the case was decided by a supervisor who was later fired and charged with corruption and child pornography and trafficking. This family deserves justice. They deserve to have their son with them. He would have been 30 now. His life taken senselessly.
