From Our Co-Presidents

Laura Meier

We are hoping to use the CWM platform to further the causes of women’s rights. In particular, we will continue to focus on women’s healthcare and reproductive rights. CWM strongly believes that gender disparities in healthcare, particularly for women of color, is a problem that we can no longer ignore. We need to shed light on this problem and educate women on how to best advocate for themselves.

CWM’s purpose is to be a strong voice for women – particularly women from marginalized communities.  We believe the best way to advocate for Women is to encourage and support them to “take a seat” at the proverbial table. This includes women running for leadership positions and political office. 

 Finally, CWM feels deeply that to make positive change, we must educate ourselves and the community by supporting the many quality programs and seminars currently being presented in Charlotte on racial equity and inclusion. We cannot expect a peaceful and prosperous community without justice and equality. CWM is an organization that was founded on the basis of the Women’s March, yet we are so more than a march—WE are a movement!
