Moore to Serve As Director for CT's Women Legislators' Lobby

women
I am thrilled to announce this week I have agreed to serve as one of the directors for Connecticut's Women Legislators' Lobby, also known as WiLL.

WiLL is a program of Women's Action for New Directions (WAND), which seeks to reduce wasteful Pentagon spending and redirect it to human needs. WiLL is a national nonpartisan network of women state legislators, including more than one-third of current women legislators and a growing contingent of Trailblazers, women who are no longer serving but wish to remain active in public policy affairs.

My colleague, State Representative Susan Johnson, will serve as WiLL State Director in the Connecticut House. Together we will work to recruit colleagues from both parties for WiLL membership and involve them in our communications trainings. We will also be connecting members with each other and with statewide elected women; connecting WiLL with WAND partners or chapters for speaking engagements; adapting, signing, and disseminating occasional opinion columns and letters-to-the-editor provided by WiLL; and encouraging colleagues to sign letters and resolutions petitioning Congress on critical budget and policy matters.

Other responsibilities of my new position include co-hosting WiLL receptions and briefings for my colleagues at our Capitol and identifying potential sponsors and donors for events and programs.

WiLL provides a link from State Capitols to the U.S. Capitol, through updates about the federal budget and policy decisions that affect my constituents at home, and with first-rate national conferences, regional and in-state workshops, and trainings to prepare women to run for higher office. Fifty-one women in the 115th Congress came from the ranks of WiLL and WAND!

I am looking forward to this great opportunity.
