About State and Local PACs

The purpose of NOW’s political action committees is to dramatically increase the number of feminists elected to public office and to advance the feminist agenda through electoral activity. To fulfill this goal, NOW state and local chapter PACs have an important role since they work to fill the pipeline of feminist elected officials at every level of state and local government.  State and local PACs recruit, support and endorse feminist candidates, with a special emphasis on supporting and electing NOW activists who run for office. NOW state and local PACs are governed by the laws of the state in which they are established and in some instances by the locality in which the election is held.
