Our Mission
Advancing equity and justice for
all women and girls through
advocacy and collaboration.
2012-2013 Annual Report
Our Values
Equity and Justice: We honor and value
the dignity of every person.

Inclusivity: We are committed to
empowering diverse members and individuals and celebrate all women.

Integrity: We conduct ourselves with
honesty and integrity.

Collaboration: We openly share our knowledge and expertise with others
to advance our common goals.
Sharing Resources & Information
Affordable Care Act
In addition to sharing ongoing information about the Affordable Care Act's impact on women, we convened a meeting with Kenneth Munson, Region V Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and our members. This meeting gave our members direct access to the Midwest's leading expert on the ACA.
Throughout the last year, we hosted meetings with Congressional leaders. In March, our members met with Representative Keith Ellison for a roundtable discussion about advancing an agenda for women's equity, civil rights, and other important gender issues.
Resource & Referral
Almost everyday the Minnesota Women's Consortium receives requests for resources from our members and women in need.
These requests come to us by phone, email, and drop-ins to the office. Located in the Frogtown neighborhood of Saint Paul, MWC is
a frequent resource for women seeking housing, emergency shelter, and legal and financial assistance. We assist these women by connecting them with our members, community partners, and government agencies that provide direct services.
Advocacy & Ale Series
In January, the Women's Consortium launched a series of meetings designed to connect individuals to the advocacy work of our members, receive the latest scoop on legislative issues impacting women, and network with community activists.

In June, Advocacy & Ale brought together key staff from Congressional offices. In addition to sharing information on federal bills like nutritional assistance and immigration reform, our guests discussed the many ways Congressional offices can assist women's and gender-focused nonprofits in their work.
Women's Policy Summit
Representatives from 26 of our member
organizations presented a joint legislative
agenda to Minnesota legislators.
