Women for Political Change (WFPC) is a multiracial, youth-led organization that holistically invests in the leadership and political power of young women and trans & non-binary folks in Minnesota. We work to shift power structures and dominant institutions by supporting young folks in public and political leadership, challenge systems of oppression rooted in patriarchy & white supremacy, and create alternative spaces for healing and transformative justice.
Before we 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.
We recognize that we are living in a society where our dominant institutions benefit from systems of oppression like the patriarchy, white supremacy, xenophobia, classism, etc. Our long-term strategy is to build a movement led by young folks of gender marginalized identities in order to crumble and equitably rebuild these institutions. In the meantime, we’re creating alternative spaces rooted in healing and transformative justice and investing in young women, queer folks, BIPOC, and other historically marginalized communities to change the face of power within public and political leadership.
