Advocacy Issues

How We Advocate

Women’s Voices addresses a range of social justice issues by:

  • Sponsoring free educational programs open to the public monthly (September-May) on the second Thursday evening of the month.
  • Advocating in support of or opposition to proposed legislation at the state and federal levels. ¬†Our advocacy includes: testifying at legislative hearings, providing written testimony to legislative committees, and meeting with legislators in Jefferson City and in their home districts.
  • Taking positions on ballot measures related to the issues we work on.
  • Writing letters -to-the editor and commentary/op-ed articles for publication in newspapers and other media.
  • Partnering with other organizations on advocacy activities including rallies, phone banking, and community outreach.
