We established a special Responsive Advocacy Task Force to help lead, support, and assist at educating, engaging, and empowering our female community (and HeForShe) pertaining to our current political, economic and social issues.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Providing education and awareness opportunities while sharing resources and material on structural/systemic racism, economic injustice, and gender inequality.

  • Support and advocate for better public policies and a more equitable marketplace and workplace, because to make lasting change, we need institutional change.

  • How to dismantle implicit biases and barriers mindsets.

  • Engaging in the advocacy process of allyship with the support of our current Educational Initiative and Women's Connection program session.

  • Seeking collaboration and/or programs partnership opportunities with various local organizations, institutions, businesses, governmental agencies, and individuals that share similar goals and outcomes on the issues.

 

Our Core Objectives

To be responsive at listening, learning to relearn, and work to understand the problem, identify how to turn the problem into issues, which then become doable and solvable through Prevention, Intervention, and Retention.
