I am committed to helping recruit, train, and support women candidates for political office. NWPC is a group of women helping women accomplish these goals. I feel women bring a sense of inclusion to politics. Women are much better working in cooperative groups. It is very important to me to get more people motivated to serve in politics, especially young people. It is their future, after all. I am hopeful that in the future we may be able to have forums with young women, maybe some who have run for office, or maybe even got elected. They can speak about what their experiences were like, why they chose to run, what they did campaigning and why. Or what they might do differently next time. We need to be reaching out to young women and getting them motivated.
