FAWL strives to actively promote gender equality in leadership roles within the community at large. Encouraging women to run for office is a crucial step for advancing gender equality but we must work together to put more women in office.
Here's how it works:

Tag a photo on social media with the hashtag #FAWLintoOffice of you working to get a woman elected.

For example, this can be a picture of you wearing a campaign button or t-shirt while making calls, dropping off flyers, putting in a yard sign, hosting a virtual fundraiser etc. for a female candidate. Post that picture on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter tagged with #FAWLintoOffice for your entry to be counted. Please note: Only one post per member will be counted for purposes of the grant award and a member must have an active FAWL membership on the date of the post to be counted.  So renew today! If you have trouble renewing, please email [email protected] for assistance.

The chapter with the highest percentage of members who post between Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 and Monday, November 2, 2020 will be the winner in their respective size category and receive a grant from FAWL! The grant categories are listed below.

There are four chapter categories: Large, Medium, Small, and Rising.
