About Women & Politics
Equal Access. Equal Power. Equal Representation.
We will actively engage women with politics and create opportunities to amplify their voices.
Women & Politics is a citizen-led initiative that looks to engage and increase the participation of women in the political landscape. We host social events, develop educational resources and tools, participate in political activities, and connect women with their community and each other.
We are a non-partisan organization. We welcome all women to participate in our programs and events regardless of their political affiliation or knowledge of politics.
