Women hold only 18.5% of the seats in Congress and less than 22% of seats in our New York State legislature – 33rd in the nation. NOW-NYC is committed to increasing women’s representation: we are educating voters on the women’s rights credentials of local candidates, working to elect pro-choice and pro-women’s rights leaders to represent our city, and lobbying for a strong platform of equality that cuts across issues.

Who Does NOW-NYC Endorse?
The NOW-NYC PAC endorses candidates who represent voters living in New York City at the state and city level. This includes candidates seeking citywide office, City Council seats, or those representing New York City voters in the New York State Assembly and Senate. (Note, if you are seeking to represent voters in Brooklyn or Queens, please contact the Brooklyn/Queens NOW chapter.)
The NOW-NYC PAC also serves as a point of contact for candidates seeking to represent State voters at the state or national level, including State Assembly or Senate seats representing voters outside of New York City and those seeking to represent New York State voters at the national level.
NOW National endorses candidates in federal races at the recommendation of our state chapter, which is made up of representatives from chapters throughout New York State, including NOW-NYC.
