Ongoing Advocacy

Acting on information

The power of our coalition is that we can activate women from across the state with timely information on a wide range of issues. You are invited to get connected to our communication channels and then

  • Follow the action instructions in the post
  • Forward the information to your community
  • Contact your legislators on the issues as they are of importance to you
