Finding Our Resolve

With a President-elect, both houses of Congress and potentially the Supreme Court at odds with VCWPC core issues, we need to be more vigilant than ever in protecting our rights and our communities around the issues of Reproductive Rights and Social, Economic, Environmental and Educational Justice.

In the coming year, will also be redoubling our efforts to recruit, train and support women candidates to fill the political pipeline with women who share our mission.
