WPLN is building a network of state-based organizations who are identifying, engaging, and training women to run for elected office, obtain political appointments, and become more involved in the political process.

We partner with nonprofit organizations that align with our mission and share our values. These organizations are empowering women to lead and become more engaged at every level of government.

Nevada Women’s Leadership Alliance

Nevada Women’s Leadership Alliance aims to create a better Nevada, one woman at a time. We seek to support women who share our values for common sense pragmatic policy solutions, are pro-business and resource development, and believe in efficient, fiscally responsible government management. We focus on women with these values because they are widely underrepresented in elective or appointed public service roles and in the business world in Nevada.

The Pocketbook Project

The Pocketbook Project places resources and skill sets at the disposal of fiscally responsible female candidates for federal, state, and local offices across New England.  Because right of center women are less likely to run and the party structure lacks the apparatus to help them, the Pocketbook Project fills the gap.

We focus on candidates who support equality, the free market, fiscally responsible spending and transparency in government.
