Welead OC ("WE" = "Women Empowered") is dedicated to empowering Progressive Democratic women in Orange County by engaging and educating through development training.

Welead OC's mission is to build a backbench of Progressive Democratic women candidates, women campaign professionals and activists, thereby increasing the number of elected Progressive Democratic women in our County. 

Welead OC's primary focus is Women of Color and women living in under-represented communities in Orange County.

Orange County politics will change significantly when Progressive Democratic women become engaged, educated and empowered --- kitchen table-by-kitchen table, living room-by-living room, block-by-block, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, precinct-by-precinct and city-by-city.

Welead OC strongly advocates in support of local elections because local elections matter --- the real work takes place during School Board meetings, City Council meetings and with our County elected officials. It's where the community's voices are heard.

Welead OC is committed to a long-range strategy developing the necessary infrastructure to turn Orange County Blue.

Women make up the largest voting bloc in Orange County.  And --- Women Vote!

Welead OC's Women's Candidate/Political Development Training Program's purpose is to build a backbench of qualified Progressive Democratic women to run for elected office, to work as professionals with political campaigns and as activists to organize neighborhoods throughout the County.

Welead OC's in-depth political development training program focuses on engaging, educating, empowering and training women in all aspects of political campaigns, in preparation for a run for elective office, working as professionals for local campaigns and as organizing activists.

The political development training program is open to Orange County women registered as Democrats. There is no charge for the training.

The change that is OC!  Progress!
