OWL again supported the YWCA's annual Women’s Legislative Caucus Breakfast on Wednesday, January 24th at the YWCA’s Fuller Hall. The caucus, in existence for over two decades, includes all members of the Hawaii Legislature — currently 15 in the House and seven in the Senate. It is a formal, bipartisan, and bicameral caucus that each year introduces an official package of bills and resolutions in both the Senate and House of Representatives. The Caucus' legislative agenda focuses on women, children and families.
This year's sold-out breakfast and press conference was organized to provide supporters with a preview of the 15 bills that will be proposed in the upcoming session. This year's initiatives cover a broad spectrum of issues from ensuring access to quality healthcare, reducing violence against women, increasing economic opportunities for women in our state, protecting children, and ensuring equal opportunity for women.
Thank you to OWL members Lisa Ma, Renee Green, Pam Harms and Julie Arigo for their assistance at the registration table during the Women's Legislative Caucus Breakfast!
