How to Start a PAC

52 minutes

What is a political action committee (PAC)? It's a political organization that raises money to elect and/or defeat political candidates. Liuba Grechen Shirley steps to the front of the class to discuss why she created VoteMama and L. Joy gives a lesson on PACs and how you can start one.

Joy and June catch up with Liuba Grechen Shirley since she petitioned the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) to use campaign funds for childcare during her historic 2016 congressional campaign in New York's 2nd District. Liuba is the Founder and CEO of VoteMama PAC which supports Democratic moms with young children running for public office up and down the ballot and across the country though mentoring, fundraising and endorsements.
