||About the PAC
Our MWPC Political Action Committee (PAC) provides support to qualified, pro-choice women candidates running for legislative and statewide offices via the MWPC endorsement process. Selected races for local office are also included in the endorsement process. Candidates answer a questionnaire and then are screened for an interview with the Political Action Committee Board. Endorsed candidates receive access to MWPC lists, a press release, and technical support and financial contributions. Each year, the MWPC PAC is active in the election cycle and helps women across the state pursue their political goals and step up to power. In the last election five of the six new women candidates endorsed in the general election for legislative office were victorious.
Our primary issues are:
- Reproductive freedoms and the right to choice
- Equal and civil rights for all citizens regardless of sexual orientation, religion, race
- Support for the Equal Rights Amendment
- Accessible and affordable child care
We also support issues of quality education, family leave, pay equity, prevention of domestic violence and crimes against women, and prevention of sexual harassment.
Volunteer on a Campaign
The MWPC Political Action Committee endorses candidates and tries to assist them in many ways. In addition to assisting candidates with phone banking and sign holding during campaign season, the MWPC Political Action Committee hosts “Caucus Saturdays” where MWPC members and supporters work together on a project for a candidate.
