Washington, DC – To cap off Care Workers Recognition Month in April, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) Action Fund launched its caregiving focused 2024 national voter guide with partners in three battleground states this week, marking the beginning of its electoral work this campaign season.

The caregiving voter guide is the first of four issue-focused national voter guides that NWLC Action Fund will launch over the coming months. The national guides are focused on the top gender justice priorities for voters in 2024, including:

  • Investing in caregiving  
  • Championing reproductive rights 
  • Fostering safe & inclusive schools
  • Building a more reflective democracy

Inside each national voter guide, you will find NWLC Action Fund’s policy agenda, what’s at stake for voters on these issues in 2024, and suggested questions for policymakers.

NWLC Action Fund announced the launch of its national care voter guide series with its partners from three battleground states, including Mothering Justice in Michigan, Make it Work Nevada, One APIA Nevada, and 9to5 Action Fund in Wisconsin. These partnerships will help NWLC Action Fund and its partners connect with hundreds of thousands of key voters on important gender justice issues ahead of the election.

See below for statements from NWLC Action Fund and its partners:

“Women don’t live single-issue lives, which means that candidates shouldn’t treat women as single-issue voters. Whether it’s improving access to caregiving, championing reproductive freedom, fostering safe and inclusive educational environments, or safeguarding democracy, the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund is committed to making sure that lawmakers understand that these are the top issues for voters. As part of this work, I am thrilled to announce our partnership with grassroot organizations in key battleground states, including Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin. Together, we will have the capacity to mobilize voters around gender justice priorities and elect leaders who will put the needs of women and families first,” said Fatima Goss Graves, NWLC Action Fund’s President and CEO.

“At Mothering Justice, we are bringing together mothers of color across Michigan to ensure that our priorities, from affordable child care to protecting reproductive rights, are top of mind for lawmakers this election cycle. We’re excited to join forces with the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund to harness the power of Michigan mothers to help elect gender justice leaders up and down the ballot in November,” said Tyler Hayes, Political Director at Mothering Justice in Michigan.

“One APIA is mobilizing Asian American, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in Nevada to ensure that we elect candidates who champion the causes important to our community, including paid leave, equitable education, and reproductive care. AANHPI are the fastest growing demographic in the country, and One APIA is dedicated, along with the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund, to ensuring that gender justice priorities are front and center this election cycle,” said Amy Koo, Political Director for One APIA Nevada.

“In order to address the gross disparities that Black women and other women of color in Nevada face in every facet of their life, we must elect candidates who are actually focused on issues like child care and reproductive rights – and not just using kitchen table issues as a backdrop to speeches without investing in the issues we care about. We look forward to partnering with the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund to build a grassroot campaign that will energize our community members and advance racial and reproductive justice,” said Erika Washington, Executive Director of Make It Work Nevada.

“9to5 Action Fund is fighting to enact policies that will help all women and their families thrive. With the support of the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund, we’ll be able to strengthen our efforts to engage with our community and fight for leaders who are focused on gender justice priorities,” said Christina Thor, Executive Wisconsin State Director at 9to5 Action Fund.
