We’re accepting applications for the 2018 class of the Women’s Policy
Institute-State now!

Are you an advocate or activist in the areas of criminal, economic,
reproductive, trauma or health justice?

Over the course of one year we’ll train you to advance policy change in our
state capital on behalf of your community. We’ll show you how the policy
process works—how to conduct research, develop messaging, mobilize
supporters, build relationships with legislators, staffers and allies, and
create and advocate for bills.

The WPI is stronger and more effective than ever: over the last 14 years,
we’ve trained more than 400 people. By applying to join the 2018 class,
you’re giving yourself a chance to learn and benefit from this tremendous
network of alumni, trainers, and peers.

Want to know more? We’ve set up a series of informational webinars, where
you’ll have the chance to hear from a current fellow as well as WPI staff
and ask questions about the program and application process.

Sign up for an informational webinar now!
The first one
is happening on Tuesday, June 20, at 1pm Pacific time.

Don’t wait,* the deadline to apply to the 2018 WPI-State class is Friday,
July 21, at 12pm.*

Program Associate, WPI
