Elevating Women in Politics, From Galax to Gainesville


The National Women’s Political Caucus-Virginia is a chapter of the National Women’s Political Caucus (NWPC), a national, pro-choice, multi-partisan, grassroots membership organization dedicated to identifying, recruiting, training and supporting women candidates for elected and appointed office. 

The NWPC-VA amplifies the NWPC’s mission in Virginia, and in 2020 our chapter was founded with the following goals:

  • Increase women's participation in the political process

  • Increase the number of women in elected and appointed positions

  • Support candidates who support women

  • Draft legislation that centers on equality and the needs of women

As an organization, the NWPC-VA believes in: 

  • Making the Equal Rights Amendment the 28th Amendment to the Constitution

  • Giving all Virginia women the freedom to control their own bodies, including accessing abortion care 

  • Bringing child care and health care equity to all Virginians 

  • Bringing environmental justice to our most vulnerable neighborhoods 

  • Developing real and lasting criminal justice reform 

  • Education equity for all Virginia children, no matter their zip code 

We stand on the shoulders of centuries of women who have worked for women’s equality in Virginia, and we actively collaborate with like-minded organizations to build on past progress. 

We are dedicated to leaving a powerful legacy for years to come. 

Dedicated exclusively to increasing women’s participation in all areas of political and public life.
