The Alliance: State Advocates for Women's Rights & Gender Equality is a first-time collaboration among five regional women's rights and gender equality centers across the country: Legal Voice, Gender Justice (Upper Midwest), Women's Law Project (Pennsylvania), Southwest Women's Law Center (New Mexico), and California Women's Law Center.


We formed The Alliance to strengthen our collective advocacy capacity, pursue pro-active state strategies to advance the rights of women and LGBT individuals, and create positive change on critical issues in Alliance states. While the legal and societal changes we aim to create are often limited by state lines, the issues themselves are universal.
