    Celebrating 2019 Campaign Heroines

    Join NWPC-WA for a beloved Caucus tradition, the annual Campaign Heroines Event. This event celebrates all our work during the 2019 election cycle and honors the women staff and volunteers who powered the campaigns of our endorsed women candidates. This is a great event to hear from our endorsed candidates about their experiences running for office, celebrate the women who made it possible, and get inspired to make 2020 another winning year for women. 

    Treats and drinks will be served. Kids are welcome. Additional details coming soon!

    Seattle Councilwomen: We stand with you

    Seattle's five city councilwomen are under attack from misogynists for taking a no vote on a land use proposal related to the proposed Sonics Arena. In the past 24 hours, they have been physically threatened, sexually harassed, and reduced to voting no because they "don't understand sports".

    As reported by Erica C. Barnett in the C is for Crank:

    The insults, which can be summarized as “You cunt,” “Die,” “Get back in the kitchen,” and “women are subhuman,” may be familiar territory for women who spend a lot of time having opinions on the Internet. But they’re unprecedented in recent memory for the Seattle City Council, and give the council’s five-woman majority an unwanted taste of what happens when female public figures fail to “know their place” — by, say, voting against an arena supported by a large, mobbish clique of male sports fans.  It says something that the sexist vitriol against these five women with the temerity to hold local elected office only bubbled over once men were no longer a majority of the council.

    Join us in sending a strong message of support to our Seattle City Councilwomen: We stand with you, and we will not tolerate this misogyny on our watch. We will hand-deliver your signatures to the Councilmembers Bagshaw, González, Herbold, Juarez, and Sawant. This week's actions remind us that sexism is alive and well, and we must redouble our efforts to stomp it out at every turn. As women band together to shatter glass ceilings in government, in the boardroom, and on Main Street, it is up to us to loudly and proudly stand with these women and let our feminist flags fly.
