Join us in the fight for gender justice.

Women—especially Black, Native American, Latina, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women—are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic as essential workers while also shouldering the brunt of our nation’s inadequate response. Women are taking on the lion’s share of unpaid caregiving, losing jobs at the highest rates, and getting pushed out of the labor force altogether. In order to recover and rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, we must center the needs of women, especially women of color–at work, at school, at home, and in their communities.

If you are interested in pursuing a policy agenda to promote policies that will support women and girls in your state, please contact Andrea Johnson, Director of State Policy, Cross-Cutting Initiatives at the National Women’s Law Center by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 202-588-5180.

Pathway to Gender Justice

For nearly five decades, the National Women’s Law Center has been on the forefront of championing policies and laws that help women and girls achieve their fullest potential throughout their lives and in all sectors. In the beginning, we fought to expand possibilities for women, girls, and families through legal battles and policy fights and now we anchor advocacy for women, girls, and families in the era of #MeToo and #TIMESUP. In the face of Trump’s unrelenting attacks, we have honed our formidable legal, policy, and cultural organizing expertise on the local, state, and national levels to serve on the frontlines of gender justice and to protect and advance our communities’ needs in the upcoming 2020 presidential electionOur goal is to drive a national conversation that will ensure positive change in 2021 for women, girls, and families.
