Who we are

The Metropolitan Louisville Women’s Political Caucus works to increase women’s participation in the political process and to identify, recruit, train and support feminist women for election and appointment to public office.

Principles

  • To strive for equality for all women
  • To ensure reproductive freedom
  • To achieve quality dependent care
  • To eradicate sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, ageism, ableism, violence, poverty and discrimination on the basis of religion or sexual orientation

Goals

  • Encourage women to be active and effective in all aspects of the political process
  • Support KWPC-endorsed candidates who run for or are appointed to office
  • Organize women for political action on women’s issues
  • Initiate, lobby and monitor legislation which guarantees women equal protection under the law and for programs and measures which benefit women

The MLWPC uses the Greek symbol for women to form five circles, representing the five races, intertwined to symbolize unity of purpose and that together we can achieve anything.
