Marin Women’s Political Action Committee- Purpose

The purpose of the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee is to increase women’s participation in the political process and to identify, recruit, train and support pro-choice candidates for election and appointment to public office. While in pursuit of this goal, MWPAC will strive to win equality for all women: to ensure reproductive freedom; to achieve quality care for dependents; and to eradicate sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, ageism, violence, poverty, and discrimination on the basis of disability, religion or sexual orientation.

Membership in the MWPAC is open to anyone, without regard to ethnicity, sex, national origin, age, economic status, or sexual orientation, who supports the purposes and goals of the organization.

Message from the President:

Dear Members and Prospective Members of the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee:

Gina2

Thank you for your support and your interest in our organization. The Marin Women’s Political Action Committee (formerly the Marin Chapter of the National Women’s Political Caucus) was organized 2012 as a grassroots organization to recruit, train and support women running for political office. Those of us in California take great pride in the many progressive women representing us in the State and Federal political arena: The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and our recently re-elected Attorney General, Kamala Devi Harris, to name just a few.

However, to keep women and women’s issues in the forefront, we need to continue to bring competent candidates to all levels of the political process. MWPAC offers mentoring and formal coaching for anyone interested in taking that leap into the realm of elected public service. Many of our members are elected officials and can offer practical advice for the fledgling candidate.

For those women not interested in running for political office, we offer programs concerning local issues and a chance to meet and support your elected officials through forums, the endorsement process and our annual luncheon in March to honor women elected to public office.

I hope you will continue to check our web site for future events and, of course, your participation is always a welcome addition.

Sincerely,

Gina Brewer
