Dear Friend of 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.
Since 1994, MLAW has supported 97 successful pieces of legislation. In 2020, despite a shortened General Assembly Session, an extraordinary 7 of 9 bills on the MLAW Legislative Agenda PASSED the General Assembly. MLAW support makes a difference!
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.
We hold an annual fall conference to develop our MLAW Legislative Agenda and a legislative reception in Annapolis during the legislative session to introduce the Agenda. Please mark your calendars for Saturday, November 14, 2020 at Silver Spring Civic Center in Montgomery County for our 2020 Legislative Conference. 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, Twitter, and other social media.
Your membership entitles you to VOTE for the legislative issues that will be included on the MLAW Legislative Agenda.
Your membership and additional contributions fund MLAW’s efforts to maintain 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 consider an additional donation to support our advocacy efforts. Please print and complete the MLAW 2020-2021 Membership Form and mail in your membership and/or donation. You may also join or donate online by visiting http://www.mdlegagendaforwomen.org.
