About NWPC

Founded in 1973, the National Women’s Political Caucus of California (NWPC CA) recruits, trains and supports pro-choice women candidates who support our “bottom line issues” for elected and appointed offices at all levels of government regardless of party affiliation. In addition to financial donations, the Caucus offers campaign training for candidates and campaign managers, as well as technical assistance and advice.


Our goal is to achieve parity in the state legislature by 2020. We look forward to working with you to help us get there.
