The YWCA MDI in conjunction with the YWCA USA is focusing its efforts on three critical issues facing women:

  •  repealing sequester cuts, resulting in a fair budget that supports women and their families;
  • passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform; and
  • reduction in domestic violence deaths, by supporting the Domestic Violence Criminal Disarmament Act.

The YWCA MDI attended Capitol Hill Day as part of the YWCA USA Annual Meeting in Washington DC on June 12th, 2014.  Visits were held with Sen. Susan Collins and aides from Rep. Michael Michaud and Sen. Angus King's offices.
