Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee seeks to achieve a society based upon the feminist values of social, political, racial and economic gender equality.

As a non-partisan political action committee, SBWPC endorses candidates who support its positions and promote a feminist agenda.

SBWPC is committed to taking social action against discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age or ability.

To promote and fund these goals, SBWPC sponsors candidate development workshops, endorsement meetings, cosmopolitics, Presidents’ Circle Luncheon, community events and educational forums.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
