Message from the President:
Dear Members and Prospective Members of the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee:
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, Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis, Dianne Feinstein, our new Senator Kamala Devi Harris, and Vicki Nicholls as co-Historian, 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.
