Growth. Action. Change.
Before Women for Political Change (WFPC) officially became a nonprofit organization in 2018, we just a group of young folks were organizing as a student group at the University of Minnesota. We came to college looking to get involved in political activism, but there wasn’t a space on campus where we could learn from one another, stand in solidarity, and take action on the political issues that affected our communities— so we made one.
Women for Political Change (WFPC) holistically invests in the leadership and political power of young women and trans & non-binary individuals throughout Minnesota.
Vision & Theory of Change
We are living in a society in which our dominant institutions actively benefit from and perpetuate oppressive systems, including patriarchy, transphobia, white supremacy, xenophobia, and classism. By investing in young people and creating alternative spaces for community education & healing, we are challenging these systems of oppression and shifting the face of power within public and political leadership.
Accessibility as a core value.
As a practice in eliminating barriers and democratizing knowledge, we have put together a glossary of terms and phrases that relate to the work we do and populations we aim to serve. You can find that resource here.
