“Women in Blue” is a proud tradition of our federated clubs which annually choose one day to speak with their legislators about issues that affect their local communities, their states, their country and the world. These issues are wide-ranging but are of particular relevance to women and families. Our NFDW colors are blue and white and the women dress in blue on that day as a symbol of their solidarity.
We hope that you will use this blueprint for advocacy to help you in your own community to develop policy, inform your elected officials about your important issues and, guide these issues through the legislative process so that your bills become laws. This handbook will also serve as a guide for working with your Congressional representatives in the House and in the Senate.
