Naming Our Women (NOW)

This election year, we have the chance to fill more seats in Arkansas with progressive women than ever before.
And we need YOU to help us make sure that happens!

 

To honor the years of women’s activism that have gone into getting us to this point and the power of the relationships that will take us forward, we invite you to join PAWPAC in the Naming Our Women project.

 

NOW is our 2020 fundraiser to support progressive women running for
office in Arkansas.

JOIN US!

 

HONOR THE INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE AND HELP US CARRY ON OUR MISSION.

Who is the strongest, most powerful, most beloved woman you know. . .
The one who impacted you with her strength, wisdom, and tenacity. . .
Your grandmother, mother, aunt, daughter, or best friend. . .
The one who inspired you to be the powerful woman you are today?
Her name needs to be known; her image needs to be seen.

Name her and make her part of our history.
A history that too often leaves women out.
Name her and make her part of our future.
A future where women have equal power in politics.

On this 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Progressive Arkansas Women PAC is birthing a project to make our beloved women visible. 

Collaborating with noted artists in the community, PAWPAC will create a collection of our women’s names and images and digitally project them in large format around Arkansas to a wide audience. The project will be archived on our website, making it available to everyone.

This is the year we celebrate centuries of women’s activism.

This is the year we elect more progressive women to office. 

Together, we will show the power of women supporting women.
