BENEFITING: Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund
I am proud to return to my home state of CT and now serve as the new Executive Director of the Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund (CWEALF).
As the only statewide organization with the mission to empower women and girls you can imagine we have a lot of work to do! Here's the thing. We are a small nonprofit with a mighty mission. We need to raise $10,000 in less than 2 weeks and I am committed to do my part!
Just this year:
Over 1,000 women received the information and support they needed to pursue their legal rights through CWEALF’s Information & Referral service hotline
250 people received in-depth one-on-one advocacy with our Bilingual Community Advocate
More than 600 middle & high school girls experienced Expo days filled with hands-on STEM education—led by enthusiastic female role models working in STEM careers
We passed new state laws to strengthen protections for victims of domestic violence, prevent human trafficking, and establish affirmative consent policies on college campuses
We led the CT Campaign for Paid Family Leave to sign on of many new small businesses and pass paid family medial leave legislation out of the Labor Committee with bi-partisan support
I'm asking for your donation today (and by June 30th!) because I believe in this organization, I believe in this cause, and I know you too want to make gender equality a reality. Your donation of any size can make sure I can reach my personal goal!
