What we do.
California’s state legislators make decisions on issues affecting our daily lives and yet less than half those decisionmakers are women. The California Women’s List PAC is changing that.
We’re fundraising for, supporting, and electing more women to state office. Issues like education, healthcare access, voting rights, equal pay, gun violence, immigration, and economic inequality affect the lives of women more disproportionately yet female legislators comprise only 24% of the State Assembly and 28% of the State Senate. We’re committed to female candidates who provide leadership on these issues and help represent the multitudes of Californians that believe in a more equal California.
The California Women’s List PAC also works to surround female candidates with a vibrant network of dedicated women and men supporting women in the political arena.
California Women’s List is dedicated to strengthening the voice of women and their values in California. We will…
Remember why change matters.
Knowing the people who will benefit most from social change is how we will develop candidates and winning campaign strategies. We will learn about the people our elected women serve, ensuring progress moves in the right direction to help improve the lives of their constituency.
Do more than just “show up." Lead the line.
Show up to the party and be the first to identify opportunities, process and delivery. Be excited and open to emerging ideas and technologies. Embrace what others are afraid to touch, and be a champion for ideas that challenge the status quo.
Remain vigilant in our fight for equality.
When everyone gets comfy and assured, trouble brews and opportunities are missed. Coretta Scott King once said that “struggle is a never-ending process and freedom is never really won — you earn it and win it in every generation.” The struggle for equality must progress with each generation.
We will work towards making every space an inclusive one. We must listen to and celebrate different cultures and identities, acknowledging the histories of communities of color, the disabled, the LGBT movement and more. As the face of our country changes, embracing policy that will benefit all families is not just a good idea, but a necessity.
Respect the past. Change the future.
Honor and learn from the dynamic women who got us here, and know that they want us to get back to work.
