In Building a Prosperous Maine, we laid out a roadmap to economic security for women and our families. On October 16th, we’ll come together to turn those ideas into action. Register to be a part of this energizing day with like-minded opinion leaders from across the state as we hear from thought-provoking speakers, participate in interactive workshops, and take advantage of opportunities to build our skills.
Here’s a peek at one of our speakers: Caroline Fredrickson, author of the upcoming book Under the Bus: How Working Women Are Being Run Over.
Caroline Fredrickson is the president of the American Constitution Society (ACS) and a senior fellow at Demos. She has been widely published on a range of legal and constitutional issues and is a frequent guest on television and radio shows. Before joining ACS, Fredrickson served as the director of the ACLU’s Washington legislative office and as general counsel and legal director of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
Volunteer opportunities are also available. Contact (207) 622-0851 x2 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2014, we released a set of policy recommendations to strengthen women’s economic security. The recommendations would bring our workplace policies into the 21st century, meet working families’ basic needs, ensure that our children get a strong educational foundation and adults have the tools they need to support themselves, and make sure all Maine people have access to a full range of health care services.
