The National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC) was founded in 1973 to support women running for political office. Since then, NWPC has expanded to 38 states with both state and local caucuses. The Orange County California Caucus is one of 17 local caucuses throughout the state of California.
The OC Caucus recruits, trains, supports, and endorses female candidates throughout Orange County’s 34 cities. It also recommends candidates for federal and state office from Orange County’s five congressional districts, five state senate districts, and nine assembly districts.
The mission of the National Women's Political Caucus of California, Inc. is to increase women's participation in the political process and to identify, recruit, train, and support feminist women for election and appointment to public office. While in pursuit of this goal, NWPC OC will strive to win equality for all women; to ensure reproductive freedom, to achieve quality dependent care; and to eradicate sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, ageism, ableism, violence, poverty, and discrimination on the basis of religion or sexual orientation.
