The East Bay Women’s Political Caucus is a nonprofit membership organization that works to increase the number of pro-choice women to elected and appointed office and to win political, economic and social equality for all.
The special election to replace former State Senator (now Congressman) Mark DeSaulnier will be March 17, 2015 with a potential runoff on May 19. The East Bay Women's Political Caucus is pleased to host a mixer and forum on Monday, March 2, with the two women running for this seat.
Senate candidates Assemblymember Susan Bonilla and former Assemblymember Joan Buchanan will join us to discuss their campaigns, meet with East Bay Women's Political Caucus members and mingle with residents of State Senate District 7. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the women running in this important special election. Please note: This is not an endorsement meeting. The event is open to EBWPC members and also to the public.
