Register for Annual Conference



The Elected Women of Excellence Award was created to identify elected women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities. These pacesetters have engendered an environment where women can now serve in public office and fight for the issues they are passionate about. At most, one Republican and one Democrat from each state can be selected for this prestigious honor.

Deadline to Submit Nomination: September 1st, 2021

Earlier this month, NFWL featured a webinar from the Pew Charitable Trusts that looked at a study on alternative financial arrangements.The webinar focused on the financing people use to buy lower-cost homes and the barriers lenders face when offering small mortgages. They further discussed market practices, evaluating borrower protections and experiences, and promoting access to safe, affordable home loans.

With thanks to our partners,



Access the Resources



Telehealth has greatly expanded in the US since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and has proven to be a viable option for some people to obtain contraception. Power to Decide’s polling data found that 77% of respondents agree that telehealth is a useful method to get birth control when in-person visits are not possible. Find out how your state is doing to support contraceptive access through telehealth with Power to Decide’s interactive maps and tables. These tools synthesize state-level telehealth policies (Medicaid and private payor) pre-COVID and during COVID, with a focus on those that can have an impact on contraceptive access. You can also view a webinar recording about these resources.

To stay in the know on all this and more, sign up for Power to Decide’s Beyond the Beltway Bulletin.
