LET'S GET TO WORK: Civic action to-do list for 3-27-17

Let JWI be your voice on Capitol Hill

JWI's Young Women's Advocacy Day is April 3rd, when nearly 100 young women will meet with 22 members of Congress. If you can't be there, we can be there for you: Tell us which issues are of greatest concern to you and we will do our best to represent your interests when we visit the Hill. 

What’s your local issue?

Last week, we talked about the importance of women running for local office. Now it’s time to find your local issue! What inspires you? What makes you want to stand up and fight? Whether it’s public schools, water quality, elections, or more, there’s an opportunity to make your voice heard. Now is the time to be bold: Do your research, attend public meetings and town halls, and launch your campaign! 

Give yourself a hand, and wear pink on Wednesday

Your calls and emails worked! On Friday the House withdrew the AHCA, which would have blocked low-income women and men on Medicaid from accessing Planned Parenthood services. Join PP’s Pink Out Day on Wednesday by wearing pink and participating in the Pink Out thunderclap.

And for you...

We’ve all seen “what a feminist looks like,” but do you know how a feminist talks? USA Today pulled together a helpful glossary for those of us who didn’t major in gender studies.
