National Women's Law Center

The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) works to improve the lives of women and girls, with a focus on the needs of low-income families. NWLC provides state level data analyses, materials, and technical assistance to get new laws passed and enforced. They educate the public about ways to make the law and public policies work for women and their families.

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

  • Equip state-based advocates with research and analysis that help them fight for child care investments and advance better child care policies, especially for low-income families, communities of color, and providers and educators. Resources will focus on strategies to respond to the pandemic; the role of Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) care; impact of child care on women’s economic security; and policies that enhance the resiliency of the child care system for the long-term.
  • Provide ongoing TA to state-based advocates and grassroots organizers, including conference calls, memos, fact sheets, and an annual conference (virtual) to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and strengthen state-federal feedback loops.
