Over the years, the Women’s Congressional Policy Institute (WCPI) has worked to bring women policymakers together across party lines to advance issues of importance to women and their families. WCPI strives to achieve this mission, in part, by sharing with you, our subscribers, valuable information, including invitations to our briefings, as well as timely information on congressional actions affecting women.
Through direct contact with you and related other resources, we collect personal information that we use to invite you to our events and congressional briefings, to send weekly editions of our Weekly Legislative Update, and to improve the information on our site. Please note that you are able to opt out of receiving any or all of our e-mails at any time.
