W.O.M.A.N. is in the news! We have been hard at work since the presidential election, and we are getting noticed!

Vigil for the ACA

WNEM was one of three local news channels covering our fight to save the ACA.

 

WOMAN meets with Rep. Moolenaar

WOMAN met with Rep. Moolenaar today after the invitation he extended in response to our Show of Presence yesterday.

We made progress in that he agreed to participate in an open forum during his April recess! We will continue to be in touch with him to ensure the forum meets the demand of truly open, transparent, and a dialog.

We were pleased that WNEM was there today, keeping in the spirit of transparency.

Rep. Moolenaar was combative at times, and worked to deflect the conversation from our demands. Our Action Captains and action team members in attendance were civil and firm, and our primary goal for our first meeting was met.

Congratulations, Action Team!
