PURPOSE & VALUES
The purpose of the National Women’s Political Caucus, Sacramento (NWPC Sacramento) is to increase women’s participation in the political process, and to identify, recruit, train, and support women for election and appointment to public office. NWPC endorses women candidates only, and is multi-partisan. All endorsed candidates must support our bottom-line issues:
●Reproductive choice and access to reproductive health care, including publicly funded abortion;
●Elimination of sexual harassment and sexual assault;
●Increased access to quality affordable child care and other dependent care programs;
●Equal pay for equal work and elimination of gender and race-based inequity;
●Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment;
●Elimination of discrimination based on race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, marital status, socioeconomic status, and disability.

If a candidate supports all of these issues and will publicize the NWPC Sacramento endorsement if received, she may complete and submit the NWPC Sacramento Candidate Questionnaire (see link below) as an application for consideration for endorsement by the National Women’s Political Caucus, Sacramento.
