CFUW advocacy is guided by the policies and resolutions voted on by members at both Ontario Council and CFUW National annual general meetings.
One of our Spring meetings includes discussion and approval, amendment or rejection of the year’s proposed resolutions. Recommendations are then forwarded to CFUW National to be discussed and voted on at the CFUW Annual General Meeting.
While advocacy is a commitment of CFUW at all levels, CFUW Welland and District has formed an advocacy committee to address issues which concern women and girls locally, nationally and internationally. This committee looks to the general membership for guidance, participation and support. Support is sometimes financial, sometimes demands our time, training and skills, sometimes it calls on us to raise public awareness and to give people an opportunity to be part of the solution. The committee is open to any member wishing to focus on advocacy.
