Keeping Up With NFWL

Check out what NFWL has been doing this summer.

Delaware Dome Tour

We were thrilled to host a Dome Tour at the Delaware State Capitol on June 13th. Along with our two wonderful Delaware state directors Representative Ruth Briggs-King and Representative Stephanie Bolden, we were joined by the Lieutenant Governor of Delaware, Bethany Hall-Long and NFWL’s own Jody Thomas, and eleven more elected women. Dome Tours are a great way to network and learn what NFWL has to offer to elected women!

Red Sand Project:

On June 10th, National Children’s Day, NFWL members focused on raising awareness of human trafficking, an industry where the average age of the victim is between 12 and 14 years old. Our elected women are dedicated to making this country a better place for the next generation, and many of them used their platform to spread the word about human trafficking through our #CherishOurChildren Challenge.

The result was that elected women from more than fifteen states committed to raise awareness about this heinous crime, either through social media campaigns or by hosting a Red Sand Project.
