The National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC) is a three-tiered grassroots multi-partisan organization established in 1971 to bring more pro-choice women into the political process.
We were founded by such renowned women as Congressional Representatives Bella Abzug and Shirley Chisholm (who you may recall was also our first woman presidential candidate), The Feminine Mystique author Betty Friedan, civil-rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, and Ms. Magazine co-founder Gloria Steinem. We have since expanded across the nation with local and state chapters stretching from Hawaii to South Carolina, and from Massachusetts to Texas.
In 2020, NWPC's Sacramento Chapter became one of the largest in the country. Because of that, we were able to endorse more than 20 women running for local political office and contribute $10,000 to their campaigns. We hope to do even more in 2022 by expanding our efforts to include all seven cities in Sacramento County as well as cities in El Dorado, Placer and Yolo Counties.
But we can only do that with your help.
By becoming a member of NWPC Sacramento, you will be entitled to a direct endorsement vote for all local women candidates. Also, as our chapter grows, so does the number of delegates we can send to state and national NWPC conventions where policy decisions are made.
In addition, by increasing the number of members in our chapter, the ratio of representation grows at the state level where endorsements are made for Legislative races. In turn, the larger California's caucus becomes, the greater our state's influence will be at the national level for Congressional and Senate candidates.
Please become a member today and help us recruit, train and elect more women to public office.
Together we can make sure that when women run, women win!
