Our key priority areas for change in Connecticut are:

  • economic security for women and their families
  • eliminating educational disparities and the achievement gap
  • women’s health and safety

We cannot reach any of these goals without paying attention to all of them. Adequate funding of programs and services is the threshold if the state of Connecticut is to make any progress towards systemic change and long term economic development.
