Our Mission

 

Our Mission

The Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus (GKCWPC), an affiliate of the National Women's Political Caucus, is a multipartisan, multicultural, grass roots organization dedicated to increasing women's participation in politics and creating a power base designed to achieve equality for all women.

 


What We Do

  • Get women elected and appointed to public office.
  • Screen, endorse and provide financial support to state and local candidates.
  • Train potential candidates and campaign volunteers.
  • Recruit volunteers to go door-to-door, do mailings, phoning for individual
    candidates.
  • Hold educational forums on WPC legislative issues.
  • Provide educational programs on getting involved in the political process.
  • Lobby cooperatively with other organizations in Jefferson City and Topeka.
