OUR ENDORSEMENT PROCESS

California Women’s List endorses in statewide and state legislature elections, and in 2022, CWL will be launching its local endorsements program.

CWL will open its endorsement process to candidates for city council, board supervisor, or city wide positions in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, and Fresno. Additionally, we will call on our 2022 endorsed State Senate candidates to identify up-and-coming local candidates in their district, particularly in less populous or rural areas, who can be brought into our local endorsement process.

Our endorsement process will involve two steps. Beginning in January 2022, we invite eligible candidates to request and submit a questionnaire to endorsements@cawomenslist.org. Members of our board will then conduct a 30 minute interview with candidates to learn more about their values and plan for building a more just and equitable California. If you have any questions regarding our endorsements process please email us at endorsements@cawomenslist.org.
