Our Women4Change Indiana IUPUI chapter held an open house on campus last night and officer elections begin today! These women are passionate and motivated and we can’t wait to see how they will #bethechange on their campus and in our state!
Our organization was highlighted in NUVO last week! Click here to read what they had to say.
"Teachers and school safety experts oppose allowing guns into schools. Lawmakers should put the safety of their constituents first and reject SB 33."

A year ago, we held our Women4Change Indiana Summit and had the opportunity to meet and engage with many wonderful Hoosier women. Now we have another great opportunity coming up to network and get involved at our Women4Change Indiana Day at the Statehouse on March 8th, so make sure to save the date and stay tuned for more details!
Women in Indiana are making only 74% of what their male counterparts do. Yet somehow, our legislature does not see this as a critical issue. Equal pay for equal work has been federal law for more than 50 years, but Indiana still lags behind all but 5 other states.
An update from our coalition partner, Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate
PLEASE, PLEASE! We need you to make calls to the committee members AND your Senator and tell them to pass an inclusive hate crime law which includes all currently named characteristics/groups including gender identity and sexual orientation.
Redistricting reform SB 326 passed in front of a full house at the committee hearing this morning! The ALL IN for Democracy coalition had a huge presence and two of our board members spoke. Thank you to everyone who came out, made calls, sent emails, and supported this effort in whatever way you could. This a step in the right direction for our state!
SB 418 has been scheduled for a hearing on Tuesday, January 23rd at 9:30 AM before the Senate Corrections and Criminal Law (Room 130). Please mark your calendars!
