It’s Time to Renew Your 2013-14 Membership Dues

Friend of MLAW:

Every year, the Maryland legislature considers hundreds of bills, and every year a high percentage of MLAW-supported bills become law. These laws make a difference for women and families throughout Maryland. MLAW is an effective, volunteer-run organization that depends entirely on dues and private contributions to do its work. We need your help to continue our work on behalf of Maryland women and families.

If you are already an MLAW member, please renew your membership today. If you are not a current member, please sign up right away. And please consider an additional donation to support our vital work.

Why support MLAW? MLAW is the only statewide coalition of women’s groups and individuals that provides a non-partisan, independent voice for Maryland women and families. We mobilize networks, groups, and individuals from all over the state to ensure the passage of key legislation.

Every year, we hold a fall conference to prepare our annual MLAW Legislative Agenda and a legislative briefing and reception in Annapolis in January. These events focus legislators’ attention on our issues and raise our visibility throughout the state. We distribute the annual Legislative Agenda to every Maryland legislator. In collaboration with our advocacy partners, we submit testimony, advocate for bills, and promote our Agenda through our website, Facebook page, and e-newsletter.

Your contributions fund these efforts, which raise a strong voice for women and families in the Maryland legislature. We appreciate your commitment to women’s rights, and we ask for your generous support. Please print and complete MLAW MEMBERSHIP FORM 2013-14 and mail in your membership and/or donation. You may also join or donate online using our secure Paypal account.

Thank you!

Michaele Cohen
President, MLAW Board of Directors
