It's Campaign Season!

Election2014.jpgVoting has already begun!  And our NWPC endorsed candidates need our help now more than ever.

Women make up 53 percent of the registered voters in this country. Let's use that power to move women closer to equality when it comes to representation locally, on the state level and in Washington.

We have several terrific candidates running this cycle so please join us in making a commitment to help between now and Election Day to ensure their success. You can volunteer and/or donate directly to the campaign or join one of the local caucus events that are raising essential funding for our candidates.

Click here for a list of our endorsed candidates and links to their websites.

We can't just keep saying we'd like to see more women in elected office. We have to work together to make certain it happens!
