Our Mission

The National Women's Political Caucus is a pro-choice, multicultural, intergenerational, and multi-issue grassroots organization dedicated to increasing women’s participation in the political process and creating a true women’s political power base to achieve equality for all women. NWPC recruits, trains and supports pro-choice women candidates 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. State and local chapters provide support to candidates running for all levels of office by helping raise money and providing crucial hands-on volunteer assistance.

The NWPC San Gabriel Valley was first established in the 1970’s as NWPC Pasadena by a group of dedicated forward-thinking women. The caucus has been extremely successful throughout the years and expanded their service area to include all the communities of San Gabriel Valley. January 2019 the caucus formally changed their name to NWPC San Gabriel Valley to better identify the geographic service.
