Connect, Convene, Amplify: All With the Goal of Collective Action
The United State of Women is dedicated to connecting, convening and amplifying voices in the movement for full gender equality. Our strength is in our power as a convener — we connect women and allies all across the country and amplify the most pressing issues of gender equality.
USOW has set an ambitious goal to spur 1 million actions in 2018. Actions are our measurement because when we take action, we can and will change policies, procedures and culture for gender equality. We are working with partner groups to organize these actions, because change will only come when we are working together.
How We Will Get To 1 Million
- The Galvanize Program: On the heels of The 2018 Summit, the Galvanize Program is coming to Miami June 9-10, 2018 to spur women into action in our local communities and beyond. Over the course of two days we will hear from activists, organizers and experts on the issues impacting women and our communities in Florida and nationwide. Attendees will leave with the tools and knowledge to activate and mobilize locally and nationally. Join us in Florida!
- Ambassador Program: Ambassadors are local leaders who are ready to step up and run United State of Women organizing projects in their local communities. Selected activists will receive the tools, data and community sharing needed to set goals, organize and win concrete steps for gender equality in their local community. Apply to be an ambassador here!
Summer Community Meetings: The Ambassador’s first order of business will be gathering the groups individuals and organizations working on gender equality where they live – similar to what USOW does on the national level. Ambassadors can request a USOW speaker or expert depending on the issues they want to organize around. Make sure you’re signed up on our email list so you can help your local Ambassador plan your Community Meeting.
Online Action Hub: What’s action if you can’t track it? In order to drive action (and keep count) USOW is working with Countable where supporters can read more about breaking news issues, how it affects you, and learn ways to take action. We’re also working to map the women’s movement so supporters everywhere can find a place and an issue to plug into. Sign in and get started here!
USOW Digital Force Fellow: As the megaphone for important issues, we have to harness the most innovative communication methods to get our message out. Similar to the Ambassador program, USOW will recruit budding content creators and pair them with media platforms looking to drive action, with the overall goal to own the internet and social channels in support of gender equality.
