OUR PROCESS

Our Endorsement Committee is made up of donors, political experts and board members, who bring their insights, experience and passion to the process of selecting the women we endorse.  

 

The Endorsement Committee looks at the following criteria:

  • Candidate's alignment with our progressive values

  • Candidate's commitment to helping other women — in and out of Harrisburg

  • Status and strength of each campaign

  • Fundraising 

  • Quality and strength of opponents in the race

  • Flip-ability of districts – can this district move from red to blue?
