Midwives Political Action Committee (PAC)

Donating to the Midwives-PAC is easy and effective. Learn more here.

The Midwives-PAC is a
political action committee that solicits voluntary contributions from ACNM
members that can be distributed strategically as campaign contributions to
federal legislators who hold key positions for political offices, or candidates
who have demonstrated an understanding, interest, and commitment to the views,
goals, and initiatives promoted by ACNM. 
PAC contributions create a relationship between legislators and
midwives, so that they see us as a resource when issues of women's health come
up before the Congress.  They also allow
us to support legislators who have a proven record on the federal issues that
matter to ACNM.  

PAC Member

The responsibilities of the
Midwives-PAC members are explained in the PAC's Standing

with National Office Staff, PAC members, and other leaders in ACNM's Division
of Advocacy and Affiliate Support to conduct fundraising activities within ACNM
and oversees distribution of these funds to federal legislators. Responsibilities
of members of the Midwives-PAC include, but are not limited to, participating
in fundraising events at the Annual Meeting as well as through the year,
attending monthly to quarterly conference calls, and working to inform and
educate ACNM's members about the political process and encourage their
participation through outreach and advocacy efforts.
