3. Thank you!

Here is some information about one of their projects:

What is Eleanor's Hope?

The retirement challenges facing millions of American women simply can’t be ignored. On average, women live longer than men yet their lifetime earnings are generally lower. Pay inequity while they’re working and often reduced benefits once they retire means millions of women face retirement and health insecurity in their old age.

The National Committee’s “Eleanor’s Hope” initiative, named in honor of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, will raise awareness, recruit and train new activists and bolster Congressional leaders who are making a difference on women’s health and retirement security issues. We’ll advocate for legislation that addresses the inequities threatening millions of retired women and work to elect lawmakers who share our vision of retirement equity for women.
