Allies can be distinguished from Partners in that allies are not seeking an MOU with RepresentWomen and aren’t necessarily working on one of RepresentWomen's Signature Solutions. Allies are organizations or individuals who are active in improving representation and/or advancing democracy reform in their localities. 

RepresentWomen can provide Allies with resources and tools, access to RepresentWomen’s networks, and with expert testimony for legislation hearings.
