Local Power: Ways State and Local Elected Officials Can Advance Women’s Rights in 2018 FULL
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This event will bring together state and local elected officials to discuss policy ideas and strategies for advancing women’s rights in 2018 and beyond. With attacks at both the federal and state level on access to health care, reproductive rights, child care, and workplace policies such as equal pay and paid leave affecting women and families, state and local leaders are at the forefront of protecting gains – and creating further progress - for women’s equality and economic security.  This policy event will include discussions by elected officials on legislation, best practices, and organizing opportunities across a number of women’s rights policy topics.
