We are the answer we have been looking for.
Let’s seize the moment. 2020 is going to be a year for big change in our country. Together, we can ensure those changes advance equity and provide economic security for women and families everywhere, by developing innovative policy solutions and working together to ensure their success.
What is it?
ERA’s latest project, the Women’s Agenda Policy Hub, is an online community co-created with Women Donors Network to connect and support advocates, policy influencers, and others eager to transform our laws and influence the legislative process in 2020.
This digital community provides free resources for advocates and activists across the country to support their efforts to lead transformational change in 2020 and beyond.
The hub’s free tools include model policy initiatives, organizing strategies, and legal wins to build on. The website is a curated capacity-building engine for advocates and organizations working to tackle sexual harassment, pay exploitation and other workplace injustices at the local and state levels. These free tools allow advocates to read legislation and litigation summaries and updates, recommendations for how to replicate good laws in other states or cities, and sample support letters to engage new partners.
Strategies: Advocates can learn about and decide which policies from other states could help move the needle forward in their state, or in a particular industry. They can also get tips on organizing and coalition building strategies.
Network News: Hub visitors can follow along with the latest efforts by advocates, communities, and policy makers in states across the country.
Policy Library & Interactive Map: Advocates and community leaders can learn about enacted and attempted legislation, and where available, related research, letters of support, legislative analysis, and other materials to help drive progressive reforms.
The interactive map features important information from progressive policy efforts across the country, including pay equity, sexual harassment and economic security laws. The features of the map help activists and campaigns access the tools and information they need to succeed.
