Advocating for Women and Girls
CWEALF represents the interests of women and girls in the public policy sphere, ensuring their voices are heard at the Capitol and beyond. Through this advocacy, women are empowered to achieve success in their personal and professional lives. By improving the economic opportunities and access to justice for all women, we also promote equality and strengthen the financial success of the state.
Our Legal Education and Research and Evaluation programs help us to understand the significant needs of women and girls throughout the state. To achieve better opportunities for women, CWEALF leads policy coalitions, offers public testimony, and collaborates with community partners.
CWEALF’s 2017 Legislative Agenda focuses on Economic Success, Access to Justice & Safety, and Bodily Autonomy & Security.
