Our first Utah Women & Politics social event is coming up! We hope you will join us for our first fundraiser event for the Utah Women & Politics Political Action Committee (PAC) on Wednesday, November 29th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at the home of Diane Stewart, xxx in Salt Lake City. RSVP to lucinkin (at) gmail.com.
Our goal is to raise a total of $100,000 for the PAC, and we are asking for each member to donate $1,000+ either directly or by bundling the funds of several people together to make the $1,000+ contribution.
Please help us get a good turnout at the event by forwarding this invitation to any others you think would be interested in supporting the Utah Women & Politics PAC.
As background on the Utah Women & Politics group:
Utah Women & Politics (UWP) began with a group of 40 women who marched in Washington on January 21. It has since grown to include over 100 women. Our initial goal was to capture the momentum, excitement and urgency achieved at the March, and to determine how make a meaningful difference in future elections. The effort has evolved such that we are currently fund-raising to form a Political Action Committee focused on supporting candidates for the Utah State Legislature. Specifically, we are seeking a more balanced, moderate and diverse legislature. The candidates we decide to support will be moderates from either party, and the race they are in must, with the appropriate support, be seen as winnable. Candidates do not have to be women. We are eager to have candidates who are willing to work across the aisle and to listen to all of their constituents. UWP support could be in the form of dollar contributions, “boots on the ground” / going door to door, or hosting events to support the candidate(s). In addition to specific candidate support, UWP is committed to improving voter turnout, fair redistricting (including the Better Boundaries Utah efforts), and actively engaging younger people in the political process.
