Arkansas women have had the vote for 100 years but comprise less than 20 percent of elected offices.
We must change that!
In the spring of 2016, Progressive Arkansas Women Political Action Committee was established to provide financial support and other campaign assistance to progressive women running for state and local offices in Arkansas.
Progressive Arkansas Women PAC’s mission is to recruit and support women leaders in our communities to run for state and local office who are committed to reproductive freedom, educational opportunity for all, and women’s economic and social equality.
Progressive Arkansas Women PAC goals:
- Recruit progressive women to run for office.
- Provide financial support and other campaign assistance to progressive women running for office in Arkansas.
- Create and sustain a network of supporters who will ensure a growing and well-funded movement to increase the number of women elected to office and by 2026 have the Arkansas Legislature comprised of 50% progressive women.
Progressive Arkansas Women PAC’s future:
In 2018, we supported 57 progressive women’s campaigns. It is not enough. In order to achieve a positive difference by 2026 and accomplish our goal of electing more progressive women, Progressive Arkansas Women PAC must continue to raise money.
Your support is crucial:
The maximum annual contribution is $5,000. Please be a part of this change and donate here.
Our Founding Members:
Bettina Brownstein, Debbie Goolsby, JoAnne Mills, Murry Newbern, LeAnne Robertson, Pat Rogers Ward, & Katherine West.
(Progressive Arkansas Women is a state PAC and is not allowed to contribute to candidates for federal office without complying with federal PAC regulations, which we are not equipped to do.)
