COVID-19 Proposal for WAGE Check out CRIAW and the National Association of Women and the Law’s concept note on core funding, endorsed by dozens of women's organizations and allies!

This concept note offers a concrete way for the government to immediately assist women's organizations and is one of the many needed actions and initiatives to support our sector.
