Get involved today. 

There are three significant ways you can support our mission to elect and appoint more women in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

START IDENTIFYING AND RECRUITING CANDIDATES

WIRE needs to leverage your personal and professional networks to let people know about our organization. We need a large network of women and men in the community helping to find qualified potential candidates and to encourage these women to seek public office.

What can I do today?

 

  • Fill out the member interest survey to let us know what skills you can contribute to WIRE's efforts or directly to campaigns.

  • Send this website or the newsletter to ten friends.

  • Ask people with political and/or community experience to join WIRE.

  • Ask women you know to consider running for elected or appointive office.  


LEND YOUR SKILLS TO A CAMPAIGN


Fill out our member interest survey.  WIRE acts as a clearinghouse, responding to campaign requests with qualified volunteers. Our database of volunteer skills sets helps us match the right volunteer with the right campaign. Of course, you will always retain control over which campaigns for which you choose to volunteer.  But WIRE helps you find where to put your skills to best use.  Love fundraising? We’ll hook you up.  Better at back office work or website or social media posting? Great.  Your skills could help the right woman’s campaign succeed.
