JWF Advocacy Issues Update
The issues you care about - direct to your inbox.

Dear JWF Community:  

We hope you all had a meaningful International Women's Day last week! We are pleased to share the Advocacy Committee's March update, highlighting our grantees and the issues that impact Jewish women and girls. For more frequent updates, please follow us on our Facebook page.

April 4th is Equal Pay Day. Invite your friends to join JWF, JCAST, CFW and a number of additional local organizations for the 7th Annual Equal Pay Day Chicago rally at noon on April 4th to bring greater awareness to the global issue of racial and gender pay disparity. Learn more at

As always, please feel free to pass along any content you would like us to share with our community of trustees, grantees, and partners. We love to hear from you!
