We Will is a nonpartisan group of women and allies fighting for women’s and children’s rights in local legislation. We’re a lobbying organization, so we choose issues that our membership wants to make visible and we empower them and others to see change through the legislative process.
Joining our Advisory Board is a great way to get more involved, gain more knowledge of our organization and legislative process, and get to work with an amazing group of women to steer our organization to empower women
Our Board is made of 2 levels, Junior Board, Associate Board, and Executive Board. Everyone starts on our Junior Board. As their commitment deepens and they have a desire to become more involved, A Junior Board Member can explore moving onto our Associate Board.
