Civic Engagement & Outreach

Our Mission

Through this Committee, we are reminded that each of us is part of a larger society and is responsible for undertaking actions that will create a better quality of life and foster a sense of community – locally, regionally, nationally, and globally.

 

Citizenship|Crime & Safety | Hungry & Homeless | Military

The four ‘broad strokes’ of CE&O include:

Citizenship

GFWC's Civic Engagement & Outreach Committee shares community service announcements. Clubwomen can advocate for policies but cannot endorse candidates or engage in partisan politics while engaging in SAWC GFC-NH activities.
