We are the National Women’s Political Caucus Los Angeles Westside (NWPC LA Westside), a multi-partisan grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in the political process and creating a women’s political power base to achieve equality for all women. We endorse women for public office. We work to recruit, train, and support pro-choice women candidates for elected and appointed offices and at all levels of government.
With or without a woman on the ballot, gender dynamics have always played an important, if complicated, role in electoral politics. In 2015, we launched a groundbreaking project to illuminate and track the influence of gender during an unprecedented presidential campaign. We’ve just launched a new project, Gender Watch 2018, to provide expert analysis and perspective on gender in the national midterm elections.
