Marjorie Dannenfelser

Marjorie Dannenfelser, an original organizer of the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), is the organization's President. In this role, Marjorie directs the mission of SBA List and serves as its primary spokeswoman. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to more than 365,000 members nationwide.

Since its founding, the organization’s connected political action committee, the nonpartisan Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, has helped elect 97 pro-life candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives, 13 to the U.S. Senate and 15 to other statewide offices across the country. In the last three years, the SBA List has twice been awarded the prestigious Weyrich Grassroots Organization of the Year.


This year, the SBA List continues to lead the fight to protect unborn children, mothers, and pro-life taxpayers. At the federal level, the SBA List worked tirelessly with congressional allies to pass HR1797, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, in the House of Representatives. The SBA List is now working to secure a vote on this monumental legislation in the Senate. Additionally, the SBA List has been a key coalition-builder among pro-life and social conservative groups with the launch of the Call2Conscience.com. More than fifty national and statewide groups signed on to the coalition to apply intense grassroots pressure on Congress to protect Americans of faith and conscience from the Obama Administration’s unconstitutional abortion drug mandate.


Through its affiliated political action committee Women Speak Out Virginia, the SBA List has made the Virginia gubernatorial race it’s top political priority this year and is looking toward the 2014 elections to ensure authentic pro-life leaders are elected at all levels of government.
