One of the aims of CFUW is to improve the status of women and promote human rights and it does so primarily through advocacy. Clubs are encouraged to research and propose resolutions on issues of national importance to CFUW National annually. Resolutions may be in areas concerning the environment, health, equality or social justice. These resolutions are then sent to clubs for review.
The Advocacy Committee of Markham CFUW, invite our members to join them at a meeting, usually in April, to review and discuss these resolutions.
Once approved, clubs may petition their federal (MP), provincial (MPP) and municipal governments to advance the CFUW agenda.
