Women Legislators' Lobby

2017 WiLL Budget Letter to Congress

Thank you so much for adding your signature to our urgent message to Congress about federal budget priorities. As women leaders, we must make our voices heard in Congress, whose decisions impact our state budgets and our constituents!

We have delivered our letter to Congress, signed by more than 290 women legislators nationwide, sending an emphatic message to invest public funds wisely in programs that build our economy and our nation’s security.

Writing to Members of Congress is an important first step. Educating our constituents and getting our message in the media is also essential to help counter the budget cuts that damage the programs that our constituents depend on. We know all too well that women and working families are disproportionately impacted by cuts to safety net programs.

We strongly encourage you to deliver this letter locally to the offices of your state’s Congressional delegation. For help with scheduling a meeting, please contact WiLL Program Manger Samantha Blake(sblake@wand.org). You can also weigh in with your local media on the federal budget and on your efforts to send a message to Washington on shifting federal budget priorities to meet the needs of the women and families in your state. 

Thank you again for adding your voice to this timely and important message to Congress. Your leadership is greatly appreciated!
