At NFWL, we understand the hard work elected women dedicate each day. Passing landmark legislation and breaking down barriers is all within a day’s work. Because March is Women’s History Month, there is no better time to celebrate the accomplishments and selfless service of elected women, which is why NFWL launched this proclamation program at its 2017 Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Read below to find out how you can participate in Women in Public Office Day on March 19.
4 Steps to NFWL Proclamation Success:
- Download the proclamation below and amend the proclamation for your state, county, and/or city.
- Because each legislative body has its own proclamation process, let us know how we can support you. If there is something you need from NFWL to help declare the proclamation, contact NFWL.
- Once the proclamation is passed, let NFWL know. We will add you to our growing map and give you and your city/state a shout out on social media.
- Celebrate! Join NFWL on March 19 each year to celebrate Women in Public Office Day. From posting on social media using #WomenInPublicOfficeDay to hosting an event to inspire young women considering serving as an elected official, there are endless ways to get the word out.
