Endorsement on rigorous criteria

All endorsed candidates have demonstrated leadership on a broad range of feminist policies. The NOW PACs have historically held candidates to a stronger standard, on a more diverse range of topics, than most PACs or similar organizations. Our core issues can be found below, in no particular order.

Constitutional Equality

We are steadfast and unwavering in our pursuit of a promise of equal rights in the U.S. Constitution. The progress we have made must continue and not depend on legislation that can be (and has been) weakened or repealed by local or federal legislators.

LGBT+ Rights

We are committed to fighting discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in all areas of life, including employment, housing, public accommodations, health services, child custody, and military service.

Racial Justice

We condemn racism and the double burden of race and sex discrimination inflicted on women of color. Seeing human rights as indivisible, we are committed to identifying and fighting against those barriers to equality and justice that are imposed by racism.

Economic Justice

We advocate for a wide range of economic justice issues affecting women, from the glass ceiling to the sticky floor of poverty. These include welfare reform, livable wages, employment anti-discrimination, pay inequity, social security reform, and pension reform to name a few.

Reproductive Justice

We believe reproductive rights are issues of life and death for women, not mere matters of choice. We fully support access to safe abortion, to effective birth control, to emergency contraception, to reproductive health services, and to comprehensive sex education for men and women.

Ending Violence Against Women

NOW is unique in its approach to the issue of violence against women, emphasizing that there are many interrelated aspects to the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, violence at abortion clinics, hate crimes, bias against survivors of violence, and the violence often intertwined with poverty.

Endorsement Process

Requests for endorsement can be submitted in one of three ways as shown below.
