Health and Education

WREN recognizes that the health and education of women and children is crucial in order to ensure statewide prosperity. We advocate for policies that address the barriers that families, predominantly women and mothers, face when accessing the rights and resources needed to make healthy and well informed decisions.

Together, WREN aims to be a collective force in identifying and solving disparities that lead to low health and education performance indicators statewide. We believe that bringing fact and science together leads to solid public policy.

Education is also critical to the safety and well-being of all the families in our state. By receiving access to comprehensive information, we are enabling success in the prevention of unintended teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease and expanding opportunities for young people.

Why It Matters In SC?

If we can lift the health and educational standards for South Carolina women and girls, we can lift the whole state.
