Our focus this year at State Convention is the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF). The Legal Advocacy Fund works to challenge sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace. LAF resources range from community outreach programs to backing of major cases. Sex discrimination today takes a variety of forms: unfair pay, pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and violations of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. LAF addresses these barriers by informing people of their rights and using the legal system to seek justice and change.
We will have a collection of wonderful baskets to auction off on Saturday, April 21 with all proceeds going to the LAF. Bid early and often!
— Fund Development Co-chairs, Jane Doughty & Vicki Huffman
