    “Join like-minded, pro-choice women from across the state to learn, share and be inspired at the Arizona State Capitol.

    A continental breakfast in the Rose Garden will be followed by speakers, panel discussions and training sessions.

    We gather to:
    – raise our voices on issues of importance to AZ Women
    – encourage the participation of women in community organizing
    – highlight specific legislation that will negatively and disproportionately impact women

    Breakout sessions with legislators, community leaders and activists will educate, excite and encourage everyone to be the change they want to see! Details to follow!”
