    Women's Way - Advocacy and EducationWOMEN’S WAY seeks to conduct public education and advocacy around the issues that it funds and will work to increase civic engagement around the advocacy priorities and other mission-central issues. WOMEN’S WAY is particularly concerned about how the identified priorities impact vulnerable populations of women, girls and families including low-income women, the immigrant community, LGBTQ, elderly, disabled and incarcerated women. WOMEN’S WAY’s Education & Advocacy Agenda is community-driven as it is primarily shaped by the results of the 2008 Annual Women’s Issues Summit and ongoing conversations with WOMEN’S WAY funded agencies. The Summit is an annual opportunity for WOMEN’S WAY to hear from those working directly in the field with women, girls and their families about the most pressing needs facing these communities. The information gathered is used to develop WOMEN’S WAY’s funding and advocacy priorities. The Education & Advocacy Agenda includes targeted advocacy initiatives, determined with the guidance of an advisory committee, which will help to achieve incremental policy change around each priority issue area. Throughout the year, WOMEN’S WAY also will join other allied coalitions working on advocacy initiatives that align with WOMEN’S WAY’s mission.PhiladelphiaWomen's Way - Philadelphia; Center CityWomen's Way
