Our mission is to build a movement to advance the health, economic well-being, and rights of South Carolina’s women, girls, gender-expansive people, and their families.
Even with South Carolina’s recent economic growth and the steady relocation of international businesses here, our state faces serious challenges. High poverty and unemployment rates, low quality of education, high rates of domestic violence and abortion access restrictions, high rates of uninsured citizens, and poor health outcomes are daunting challenges.
Women, girls, and gender-expansive people, especially those who are poor, of color, and living in rural areas, carry a disproportionate share of these economic and social burdens. Without improved and equitable access to healthcare, education, and economic opportunity, South Carolina cannot reach its full potential.
WREN aims to address these issue areas by advocating at the Statehouse, educating and engaging community, and building a diverse coalition of partnerships. Together, we can create an inclusive movement that amplifies voices and advances justice for all.
We want our state’s youth to see a bright future for themselves in South Carolina, a place where they are free and prepared to pursue their highest aspirations. Join us in this movement to make South Carolina the very best place for growing our families, businesses, and human connections.
