PALO ALTO
close the gap CA
(650) 326-2216
A campaign to increase the number of progressive women in the California legislature by recruiting talented, community-based, policy-focused women to run for open seats in 2014 and 2016. The organization partners with Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, Educate Our State and progressive advocacy organizations focused on reducing poverty to identify women whose skills and records of accomplishment will make them effective leaders in Sacramento. Changes to California’s term limit law in 2012 mean we will not have an opportunity like this again until 2022. With women accounting for only 26% of the California legislature, we can’t afford to wait. Please join us today!
