When I first started high school, I wasn’t the passionate, political feminist I am today. Then I met Christina. As much as she might beg to differ, it was her display of the kindness and acceptance of others, the thoughtful way she presented opinions and insights, and the unique ability she had to see multiple sides of important issues that made me the person I am today.
Over the years, we’ve fought hard to pass bonds and levies for kids in our hometown, raised money for student scholarships and teacher grants, facilitated the endorsement of amazing womxn candidates, and coordinated detailed trainings designed to fuel the pipeline of womxn running for public office.
Christina and I have become an unstoppable force in our community. She is my friend. She is my mentor. She is my confidant. She is my Galentine!
Tell us about your Galentine!
Galentine's Day is TODAY, February 13
We want to hear about and celebrate YOUR Galentines! In celebration of Galentine’s Day on February 13, we’re asking you to DONATE $50 to honor a Womxn in your life!
Simply DONATE. Then submit a photo of you and your Galentine, and a note about on why you chose to honor them. We’ll post your Galentine’s Day message on our social media accounts (like the one submitted from Breann below) and we'll send your Galentine a personal email.
Your Galentine’s Day donation helps NWPC-WA facilitate and provide scholarships at our day-long candidate trainings for womxn.
DONATE today and recognize an amazing womxn in your life!
Seattle Womxn's March
Sunday, March 8, 2020 | 1 p.m.
NWPC-WA is helping to mobilize Washington womxn to participate in the Seattle sister march. The 2020 Womxn’s March marks three years of resistance and three years of building power together.
No matter what issue we are fighting for, no matter how we fight for justice, womxn are always stronger when we fight united. The Womxn’s March has knitted together a powerful movement of people who share a common belief that freedom is for everyone, without exception. In 2020, #WomxnRise and from our doorsteps to the White House, we’re going all in to fight for our future.
Candidate Trainings for Women are Here
NWPC-WA’s popular trainings start in March, and thanks to a grant from our national organization, they include two trainings exclusively for women of color.
There are a ton of ways to be involved and make a difference. DONATE HERE to sponsor a future candidate or campaign manager or advertise your consulting business.
Details and registration information can be found by visiting our events page at www.nwpcwa.org/events, or contact NWPC-WA Training and Education Chair, Christina Pedersen at [email protected] and save the dates:
Are you a pro-choice woman running for public office – anything from local school board to Congress? If so, NWPC-WA can help you succeed by endorsing you. To qualify for the Caucus’ endorsement, candidates must identify as women or non-binary. They must demonstrate support for equal rights, reproductive freedom, and social equity and justice for women. In addition, they must have a competitive campaign plan.
Our early endorsement process begins each year in April and regular endorsements take place in June, but our questionnaires are live and are available HERE.
For more information about our endorsement process, please email [email protected] and be sure to include the position you are running for and the municipality it represents.
