Areas of Advocacy

 

MWEG is currently focused on five areas of advocacy:

Protecting Democracy Shoulder to Shoulder Caring for Creation Rooting Out Racism Empowering Women

Principles of Ethical Government

We are watchdogs and activists whose advocacy is guided by our Principles of Ethical Government and our Principles of Nonpartisanship. These principles guide us in determining our areas of advocacy and positions on issues within those areas.

Principles of Ethical Government

Protecting Democracy

Advocating for voting freedoms and the rule of law

From voting legislation to electoral reform and other issues in this area, we are working to protect and strengthen the democratic norms foundational to ethical government.

Rooting Out Racism

Working to build the Beloved Community

Our current efforts in this advocacy area are centered on our work with the Utah Educational Equity Coalitionpromoting the values of inclusion and diversity in schools to better serve the needs of all children.

Our "Are You Aware" series and other publications also frequently focus on this topic, sharing both historical examples and personal stories.
