The purpose of the RI NOW Political Action Committee is to elect progressive women and other feminist candidates to state and local office in Rhode Island.

Candidates will be asked to complete a questionnaire and endorsed state-level candidates will receive monetary support for their campaigns

For the 2018 election cycle the RI NOW PAC has endorsed the following four candidates for statewide office:               1) Governor Gina Raimondo; 2) Representative Aaron Regunberg for Lt. Governor; 3) Treasurer Seth Magaziner; and 4) Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea.

Endorsements for Rhode Island legislators will occur in July after the June 25-27 Declaration of Candidacy filing. Questionnaires will be released on July 2 and need to be returned by July 9. Candidates will be notified of the result of the endorsement process by July 16.

Note that any local candidate (for Town/City Council or School Committee) can also be endorsed by RI NOW, but no financial support will be attached to that endorsement.
