CREATE AN EQUITABLE FUTURE FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS

Advocacy

WFSA strives to remove systemic barriers facing women and girls through statewide policy change. We write, run, support, and enact legislation that levels the playing field. With your support, we can create an Arizona where women and girls of all identities thrive. Join us in removing inequities and economic and social barriers for women and girls.

2022 Legislative Priorities

WFSA has been working hard on an ambitious legislative agenda to ensure Arizona women and girls have all of the economic and social supports they need to be self-sufficient, achieve economic independence, and to thrive.

With your partnership, we can create systemic change that levels the playing field in Arizona.

We are proud to have a track record of advancing issues with bipartisan support, like HB 2016 which was signed into law in 2021, which makes it possible for parents to maintain their childcare assistance while enrolling in full-time education and training programs that equip them for in-demand higher-wage jobs that lead to self-sufficiency.
