Legislative Priorities

Each September, the Advocacy Committee develops a list of legislative priorities for WDC Board approval. WDC's criteria are:

  • The issue is directly relevant to women and their families

  • WDC has the organizational energy and capacity to advocate for the issue;

  • There are other Advocacy Groups with which WDC can collaborate;

  • County or State legislation has been proposed that addresses the issue; and

  • At the State level, the legislation is sponsored or co-sponsored by a Montgomery County elected representative
