A word about Progressive Democratic Women’s Caucus-PAC and PACs
Progressive Democratic Women’s Caucus-PAC (PDWC-PAC) is an independent, non-affiliated political action committee (PAC). Like all PACs, PDWC-PAC engages in a variety of fundraising activities and pools monetary contributions from members and other donors to contribute to candidates who share its goals and to support legislation that furthers its priorities.
Affiliated PACs are established by organizations – e.g., businesses, trade groups, unions. In contrast, non-affiliated PACs like ours are formed by groups of like-minded people who share an ideological mission and don’t accept corporate money. As a non-affiliated PAC, we may endorse candidates in primary and general elections.
While campaigns have limits on the amount of money they can accept from individuals, PACs may make larger contributions. Also, PACs may accept unlimited donations from members and donors and pool those resources to better support candidates and issues. As a result, PDWC-PAC can have a greater impact on elections and public policy.
