Advocating for Women and Girls
Working toward improving the lives of women
As Advocates for Women, we are committed to addressing the challenges that prevent women and girls from realizing their full potential and allowing them to act as equal partners.
How can humanity solve the global issues of climate change, political conflict, disease, social inequality, and more when half of us are held back? A woman’s place is as much in business or politics as in the home! We educate ourselves and the congregation, advocate for womens rights, and raise funds for organizations that support women and girls.
Issues we focus on include:
|Ending Violence Against Women and Girls||Challenging Beauty Standards|
|Economic Justice||Racial Justice|
|Reproductive Rights||LGBTQ Rights|
Tuesday Mornings 9:00 am: Join us in front of the Planned Parenthood Health Center in Lynnwood to show support for the services they provide and the people who rely on them. For more information visit our Support and Serve Page ..
