COMMUNITY ORGANIZING

We build community power across the state by creating and sharing capacity-building tools, fostering relationships, and following the lead of Connecticut women and girls.

LEGISLATIVE CHANGE TOOLKIT

CWEALF’s Legislative Change Toolkit in English and Spanish is designed to get you thinking about how to advocate and organize in your community before, during, and after the 2023 legislative session to get loud and ensure Connecticut women are one step closer to economic security.

WOMEN’S WISDOM CIRCLES

People who live the gendered experience of “woman” and/or live in bodies who experience femininity and various versions of “womanhood” have inherited, acquired, and hold important information that is intelligent, import

ant, visionary and worthy. We also exist in a culture that upholds systems that continuously invalidate and silence women’s lived and inherited wisdom and experiences.

At CWEALF we believe women’s understandings of the world reaped from their experience are valid and important. We can define our own experiences. We can call our knowledge wisdom.
