You are Cardiss Collins!

You are Cardiss Collins!


You are a Cardiss Collins, the first African American woman from the entire Midwest to serve in Congress. The path to office is different for every woman. Some know from Day 1 that they want to run for office. Many, like Cardiss, have to be asked.

For 40 years, WCF has been encouraging woman across the country to run for office, and supporting them when they do, because we know the incredible impact that women leaders have at every level of government.

Will you donate to WCF PAC to help us encourage more women like Cardiss Collins to run for office



  • ★ 50/50 Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50/50 representation of women and men in elected office by 2028.

  • ★ Common Ground

    Common ground just means problems get solved more collaboratively, for the good of more people. It’s the bedrock of our leadership at home and abroad.

  • ★ Viability for Election

    It takes more than money to make a candidate worth electing. WCF looks for guts, street sense, situational awareness, resilience -- the full range of gifts a woman brings to the race.

  • ★ Non-Partisan

    A woman’s place is in every party, every elected office, at every level. Period.
