Rigorous Criteria

At the federal level, NOW/PAC relies on recommendations from state and local NOW chapters that are familiar with a candidate’s record and positions. All NOW PACs base their endorsements on a broad feminist agenda. No other PACs expect candidates to take such strong stands on such a wide range of issues. These issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Reproductive rights and justice
  • Economic justice
  • Ending violence against women
  • Racial justice
  • LBGT rights (including marriage equality)
  • Constitutional Equality

After the elections, NOW activists work with the officials our PACs helped elect to assist and encourage them in meeting their commitment to be leaders in the fight for equality and justice for all women.
