CALIFORNIA COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN PUBLIC HEARINGS
The California Commission on the Status of Women is holding a series of public hearings to provide a forum for Californians to voice their opinions about the real problems faced by women and girls every day. Information obtained from the hearings will assist in the Commission's ongoing work to achieve equal opportunities for all women and girls. The deadline to sign up for your 3-minute testimony is TOMORROW (see link below).
We had a great turnout of family law litigants at the last set of hearings two years ago, ensuring that family law reform became one of the Commission's top priorities, so let's be sure to turn out in numbers this year.
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA HEARING INFO:
When: Thursday, August 12th - 1 PM to 5 PM
Where: State Capitol, Room TBD
* Submit sign-up form by August 4th
