Organization description:
WoMN ACT (formerly Minnesota Women’s Consortium) was established as a network of individuals and organizations working to ensure women were included in the decision-making process for policies impacting them and their families. Since its inception, WoMN ACT has served as an umbrella organization providing leadership, training, and resources to anyone working toward the goal of gender equity. As the only statewide collective of womxn’s organizations in the country, WoMN ACT has a long history of breaking down barriers that prevent womxn and girls from having the confidence, freedom, and power to reach their full potential.
