Public Policy

Alliance for Maine Women 

AAUW has long been a member of the Alliance for Maine Women. The mission of the coalition is as follows:

The Alliance for Maine Women is a broad network of organizations working to ensure that all Mainers have the economic, social, and political power to make decisions about their bodies, sexuality, health, and families—with an emphasis on securing these rights for Maine women. The Alliance for Maine Women brings together members with diverse expertise and experiences who understand that all people in Maine benefit when Maine women have the right to economic security and reproductive justice (including access to abortion), and can live their lives with agency, autonomy, and freedom from violence. Members of the Alliance for Maine Women work to achieve this through legislative and legal advocacy, community organizing, and public education.

Maine Women’s Lobby

The Maine Women’s Lobby works toward several goals that align with those of AAUW.  One great resource is that they track bills through the Maine State Legislature.   Learn more by visiting their website.
