Hillary Clinton is a wife, mom, grandmother, staunch advocate for women and children, former First Lady, two-term US Senator, Secretary of State, pantsuit aficionado, lover of hot sauce, and the first female presidential candidate of a major political party. In each of these roles, she has inspired millions of people who still believe in her leadership and her positive vision for America. This includes the hundreds of dedicated public servants she has hired and managed.
The Hillaryland community aspires to be the home that connects all of the people who have worked for Hillary Clinton during her 40+ years of public service. This group serves as a vehicle to mobilize around causes and candidates, as well as a source of support and mentorship. Whether you were with Hillary back when she was at the White House, or whether you most recently served on her 2016 presidential campaign, this volunteer-led community strives to be the organizing hub for all of these “alumni". The Hillaryland community will bring together people from all seasons of Hillary Clinton’s life in public service including:
As has been noted by the press on various occasions, the term Hillaryland was coined over 20 years ago in 1992 at Bill Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Little Rock, Arkansas. Most media references to Hillaryland have focused on its core of female members. That said, during her expansive career, Hillary Clinton has always served alongside a diverse group of individuals from different genders, generations, races, and walks of life.
With this new, digital incarnation of the community, we want to be inclusive and throw the door open for all alumni to embrace the Hillaryland term. Our hope is that we can all take pride in being members of Hillaryland and continue to pay homage to the role that strong women have played in helping to build her lasting legacy.
In the wake of the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton has reminded us that "building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted" takes work. As a Hillaryland community, we are coming together and rolling up our sleeves to help however we can.
