Community Service Committee
The Fem Dems deeply believe that community service is an integral part of political life. The Community Service Committee will be in charge of bringing awareness to the membership of all the great non-profits in the Sacramento region, and highlight their services.
The Committee will organize Community Service Action Days every quarter for members and their families to participate in, each time partnering with a different non-profit. Through these events, members will have the opportunity to volunteer to serve the community in various ways, while gaining more in-depth knowledge of the issues our community faces and the creative solutions working to solve them.

Membership Committee
The Membership Committee is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive and intersectional space for Fem Dem members. 
We will serve as liaisons between other like-minded groups and organizations in the Sacramento area by supporting our community partners through attending meetings and functions, practicing allyship and cultural competency, and collaboration around shared goals through intersectional approaches. 
Further, we will work closely with the Communications and Outreach Committee to craft messaging that fosters inclusion and diversity. Other tasks include administrative updates to spreadsheets, tracking dues, and other bookkeeping in addition to developing an electronic membership tracking system.

Political Affairs Committee
The Political Affairs Committee helps manage the endorsement process for candidates and issues.  Tasks include drafting endorsement questionnaires, reaching out to candidates and issue representatives, and analysizing questionnaire responses in order to submit an endorsement recommendation to the Executive Board.

Fundraising Committee
The Fundraising Committee is dedicated to uplifting and financially supporting candidates that uphold the feminist principles of political, economic and social equality. We recognize that in order to influence and implement effective policies that impact us all, we must ensure those in power reflect our values. This committee taps the community for the resources to support those candidates.

The Communications & Outreach Committee is committed to both retaining current members, making sure they're connected and engaged with the Fem Dems' cause, & bringing in new membership. We will be working on new communications & outreach strategies that foster inclusion and diversity.
Our goals this year include fine-tuning the brand of our organization, creating stronger relationships with the press, expanding our social media reach with Facebook Ads, working to develop a new Instagram account, and, most importantly, building relationships and partnerships with other organizations in our Sacramento community.
