About Us

MISSOURI WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP COALITION

WHO IS MWLC?

The Missouri Women's Leadership Coalition was founded in 2001 to achieve political
gender equality in Missouri by recruiting and helping elect pro-Choice, pro-ERA, women in cities, suburbs, small towns and rural areas outside of our two major cities: Kansas City and St. Louis. We are a nonpartisan organization. 

During major election years we focus on supporting candidates for the State Legislature; in other years our focus is on supporting candidates for local elections -- who are then getting important experience so we can encourage them to run for state-level offices later! 

WHAT SUPPORT DOES MWLC PROVIDE FOR CANDIDATES?


MWLC will customize its support based on the needs of each candidate but can include:
  • Help in developing their campaign strategy and training on what it will take to run and win!Endorsed Candidates Group Photo
  • Providing information about voter history in their area.
  • Fundraising.
  • Publicizing their events through our mailing list.
  • Offering tips throughout their campaign on what should be happening at various points.
  • In areas where we have connections, helping to recruit volunteers to knock on doors, leaflet at events, do mailings, and the like.
