WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Forty-one years ago, the Minnesota Women’s Consortium was founded based on the inherent need to create economic security for women. Today, over four decades later, the need is still there.

Women are overwhelmingly impacted by COVID-19, as women are more likely than men to work in service occupations that require face-to-face interactions and have been hard-hit by layoffs. Black women are still being underpaid by 37% compared to their white male counterparts. Poverty is a particularly acute problem for women of color, affecting 21.4 percent of Black women, 18.7 percent of Latinas, and 22.8 percent of Native American women, compared to the national poverty rate for white men of 7.0 percent. 

While some strides have been made, investment in women’s and girl’s causes remains chronically low at only 1.9% of overall charitable giving despite women’s and girls’ organizations growing faster than other charitable organizations.

We have not reached equity.

About us:

WoMN ACT (Advocate, Collaborate, Transform) is the only statewide collective of women’s organizations in the country. Formerly the Minnesota Women's Consortium, we have carried our values forward by breaking down barriers that prevent women and girls from having the confidence, freedom, and power to reach their full potential.  We began to advance women’s economic security and this work must continue!

Since its inception, WoMN ACT has served as an umbrella organization providing leadership and resources to anyone working toward the goal of gender equity.  We have been a referral network, an information source, a resource center, and a supportive place – a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. 

Our organization exists because we cannot work for justice and equity alone. Together, we can ensure women have a collective voice to shape the world we want to see. We don’t just talk equity, we live it. 

Our goals are shaped by our values of equity, justice, inclusivity, integrity and collaboration. And we are: 

  • diligently fighting against unfair and unjust systems that privilege one group over another
  • inviting others to work alongside us
  • recognizing everyone's inherent worth, and
  • building interdependent networks in order to advance our common goals.

The only way we are going to address and eradicate these issues is through our collective power. We rally toward action and invite you to become a supporter and join us in the fight. With your contribution, we can make this happen.

Donate today to help us thrive!
