WOMEN LEGISLATORS' LOBBY
"Women Speaking on Behalf of Humanity"
The Women Legislators' Lobby (WiLL) is a national nonpartisan network of women state legislators who work together to influence federal policy and budget priorities. WiLL equips women state legislators with skills to maximize their success in their states and influence the federal government, creating a country where people are valued over profits, weapons, and wars.

A growing body of evidence shows that women politicians around the globe – and in the United States - are facing a deluge of gender-based attacks online, mixing weaponized hate and disinformation with the anonymity provided by social media to destroy women’s reputations and push them out of public life. Join us in a conversation aimed at increasing understanding of the dynamics of gendered disinformation and online abuse and threats against women in politics, as well as successful response tactics that can be deployed by female candidates, politicians and activists.
Rep. Jessup (VT)
WiLL beautifully weaves together the threads of culture, budgets, politics, and communications that composed the US defense spending decisions... All against a background of gender and race. Awesome!
Rep. Cannon (GA)
The WiLL women work tirelessly to promote peace.
Former Rep. Turner (TN)
Really great conference on a most relevant focus. Learned from the presenters and my colleagues. Feel very strongly that our being on the Hill made a difference!
