Our Pillars

We are a multi-partisan, multi-racial alliance of women with a mission to move South Carolina forward socially, economically, educationally, and environmentally by sharing information, making connections, and encouraging engagement in local and state leadership opportunities.

Ensure Fair Voting

The voting process must be transparent, with no unnecessary barriers. To help achieve this crucial part of our democratic process, we focus on the areas of redistricting, voting technology, and vote verification.

Fill the Pipeline

Did you know that SC ranks a dismal 47th among the 50 states in the number of women in elected office? Since 2018, we’ve been working to encourage and support more women running for public office.

Reduce Polarization

Political polarization is increasingly intense. We believe that cooperation and respectful conversations can help decrease partisan tensions and that elevating more women in Congress will increase democratic legitimacy and simple justice.
