PowHer The Vote 2017
PowHer the Vote 2017 focuses on how local laws and policies affect women’s lives. Through weekly actions and blog posts we engage and educate (potential) voters and raise the volume on key agenda issues. As you well know, Mayors, City Councils and other municipal officials can forward or thwart our issues, but less than 25% of eligible voters participate in choosing these elected officials. Yet, so many recent events, federal roll-backs and new, disturbing policies have made what happens locally even more important. We need more New Yorkers speak out for progressive values…with their votes! > Learn More
