NCJW has joined a powerful coalition of of advocacy organizations called LAW - Legislative Agenda for Women. LAW was established to develop and support specific legislation to improve and protect the interests of women.

This legislative session we are working to guarantee equal pay for women in Louisiana, expand medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, and support efforts to provide fact-based comprehensive sex education to our young people.

This week we had a victory when two bills moved forward out of their committees. Now they will move to the State Senate floor.

Please send an email or call your Louisiana State Senator today to ask them to support the bill.
