We are a nonpartisan political organization for women and men which encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. We do not support or oppose any political party or any candidate.
Should your state or community have an independent redistricting commission? We held a webinar on July 11, 2012 with two members of California’s new Citizens Redistricting Commission, to talk about the overwhelming success of California's 2011 redistricting process.
Listen to the recording and read our materials:
A referendum on the state Senate district maps drawn by the Citizens Redistricting Commission has qualified for the November 2012 ballot.
We recommend a YES vote on Proposition 30, Proposition 34, and Proposition 40.
We recommend a NO vote on Proposition 31 and Proposition 32.
Here is information about campaigns we are participating in:
We support Prop 30 the Governor's Schools and Local Public Safety Protection Act initiative to help balance the state budget and provide funding for the services that Californians depend on. A YES vote for Prop 30 in November will begin to move California to financial stability. Read our press release.
We oppose Prop 32 because it promises “political reform” but is not what it seems. Read our press release from the launch of the Stop the Special Exemptions Act campaign to oppose Prop 32. It does not take money out of politics—because Super PACs and independent expenditure committees are exempt from its controls. It is unfair and unbalanced, restricting unions while not stopping corporate special interests.
We support Prop 34, the SAFE California Act, the initiative that will replace the death penalty with life in prison without the possibility of parole.
