The Women’s Campaign Fund consists of a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization and a political action committee (PAC). The core criterion for candidate endorsement is a demonstrated commitment to common ground solutions. In addition, for the 2016 election cycle, WCF will require a pledge to support women’s health and economic security through three issues: pay equity, family leave, and information and access to contraception.
With today’s intense political polarization, we believe common ground solutions are essential to advancing America. Although WCF previously endorsed “pro-choice” candidates, we know that broadening the spectrum of women candidates can only benefit America.
Our endorsement process will be streamlined and rigorous. The WCF Board of Directors will oversee an effective process to implement these criteria and assess candidates. We look forward to endorsing candidates in 2016.
