WOOF: Older Women's Task Force Speaks Out!

WOOF applauds the National Council of Women’s Organizations' Letter to President Calling for Meeting on Budget, Asking That Women be Included in Deficit Talks.

In the fall of 1998, the National Council of Women's Organizations (NCWO) formed an Older Women's Economic Security Task Force to address the critical issue of Social Security reform and to help policy makers understand women's stake in this crucial issue.

The Task Force has worked with all NCWO members to carry out a public education campaign to reach women across the country and to urge them to let their representatives and candidates know their views on Social Security reform.

Task Force members are working to ensure the program's continued solvency and to improve Social Security for women by putting benefit improvement back on the public agenda. The Task Force also works with a coalition of organizations including labor unions, senior groups, youth advocates, public policy organizations, disability rights groups and civil rights organizations who oppose the privatization of Social Security.

Good idea! You'd think we wouldn't have to *tell* them to think of it.

Did my comment go through? I'm having trouble with blogger and commenting.
