Here is the link to the campaign toolkit. It includes materials that can be used to promote and educate voters about the measure.  If you would like to join the email list and coalition phone calls, please sign up for that by visiting https://cleanwaterandjobs.org/email-sign-up.
PowHer Summit
The PowHer Coalition (a statewide coalition of organizations committed to accelerating economic equality for all New York women) will be hosting a summit on October 13, 2022 from 3pm -6pm. The State League has agreed to co-host this event.  This summit will build on PowHer’s successful work in policy reform as well as the coalition’s anti-racist, gender-focused agenda outlined in A Roadmap to Inclusive Gender Justice in New York.  The hope is that this gathering will expand our collective power and inspire us all to act boldly in the face of escalating challenges women face in New York and the U.S.
