Spread the word about the need to preserve programs that protect women and families! - Women's Foundation California

 Women are the backbone of California’s families, workforce and economy. Yet over the past three years, California has chosen cuts-only budgets that have shredded programs critical to the health and safety of women and families. These cuts have had a devastating effect.

This can’t go on!

Help us preserve programs that protect women and families.

You can join us by spreading the word about the need for a balanced budget that includes wise revenue solutions that benefit California’s economy for generations to come.

Our goal is to beat back any further cuts to the following programs:

  1. The welfare to work program known as CalWORKs;
  2. Subsidized childcare, which provides vital assistance so that mothers can work; and
  3. Community colleges.

We’re launching the campaign on  May 14 in Sacramento because that’s the day Governor Brown releases his May Revise of the Budget in which he’s proposing even more cuts to these lifeline programs.

If you want to join us in Sacramento for the launch:
