Women's Coalition - 1st Advocacy Day at the Capitol 2-18-2008

Did you know Oklahoma has been ranked the 3rd worst state for women?? We rank #1 in Incarcerated Women, #1 in Child Abuse, #1 in the Divorce Rate, #7 in Teen Births, #42 in overall women's health, #45 in women in professional jobs. The list goes on and on.

The newly formed, non-partisan Oklahoma Women's Coalition is out to change these statistics. Please join us for Oklahoma Women: Advocate! on February 18 at the State Capitol as we make history for Oklahoma women and girls.
The day will begin with a press conference to officially launch the Coalition, followed by sessions where state leaders will provide updates on key issues and legislation affecting women and girls. We will also learn effective advocacy techniques to have our voices heard.

To download a registration form for Oklahoma Women: Advocate! just click HERE. Seating is limited, so send in your registration as soon as possible.
Whether or not you are able attend the Advocacy Day in February, I urge you to become a member of the Oklahoma Women's Coalition now. Together, we can create significant change for Oklahoma women and girls! To download the Membership Application Form, just click HERE.
