Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. is relaunching her political action committee in a bid to elect Democratic women to office, The Hill is reporting.

Gillibrand, who has dropped out of the Democratic race for president, made the announcement of the PAC in an email to supporters

"Our campaign was a fearless declaration that women’s rights are human rights, and they’re non-negotiable,” she said. “And with countless attacks on women’s rights across our country, I believe that now more than ever,"

"That’s why I’m relaunching my Off The Sidelines PAC with a pledge to raise $1 million to elect women this cycle.”

And on Twitter, she added: “For as long as I've been in public service, I've been driven by the belief that we need more women at the decision-making table in our country. Women still make up less than a quarter of Congress, women of color even a smaller share. We have some work to do.”
