SUGAR LAND, TX. (8/6/18) – Sarah DeMerchant has been endorsed by the National Women’s Political Caucus Texas, a multi-partisan grassroots organization which supports pro-choice women candidates for elected and appointed offices at all levels of government. The National Women’s Political Caucus is the only national organization dedicated exclusively to increasing women’s participation in all areas of political and public life. Spurred by Congress’ failure to pass the Equal Rights Amendment in 1970, the founders (among them Gloria Steinem) believed that economic and social equity would come about only when women were equally represented among the nation’s political decision-makers. Their faith that women’s interests would best be served by women lawmakers has been confirmed time and time again, as women in Congress, state legislatures and city halls across the country have introduced, fought for and won legislation to eliminate sex discrimination and meet women’s changing needs.
