Our Vision:

To achieve a society based upon the feminist values of social, political, racial and economic gender equality.

Our Mission:

As a non-partisan political action committee, the Santa Barbara Women's Political Committee endorses candidates who support its positions and promote a feminist agenda. SBWPC is committed to taking social action against discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age or ability. To promote and fund these goals, SBWPC provides such events as Candidate Development Workshops, Endorsement Meetings, Cosmopolitics, Presidents' Circle Luncheons, Community Outreach events and Educational Forums.

We need to elect feminist candidates who will work to improve the quality of life for women, who will protect reproductive rights, extend the deadline for the ERA and fight for social justice.
