CAP is following dozens of bills, and supporting nearly 20 this session. These are bills that will have an impact on most Arizonans, one way or another. In addition, the federal government is moving at breakneck speed to pass legislation that will turn religious freedom as we know it on its head, as well as jeopardize the privacy and wellbeing of women and girls. In this episode of Engage Arizona, we discuss the latest developments both locally and nationally, and how they will impact you.

Only policy wonks follow the daily progress of any of the nearly two thousand bills in various stages of the legislative process.

Listen here for the key bills being considered in the Arizona Legislature: what they would do, where they are in the process, and how they would affect your life if they became law.

From helping them deal with addiction, to reuniting families, Maggie’s Place is an answered prayer for women in the midst of extreme turmoil in their lives. Laura shares what it’s like to be on the front lines in the pro-life movement working alongside women and offering community in some of the most difficult moments of their lives.
