DWC Breakfast on Friday
Join us for breakfast this Friday, August 3, at 7:30 am at the Village Deli! State Auditor candidate Joselyn Whitticker will be our special guest.
Joselyn Whitticker was nominated and elected to be the Democratic candidate for Auditor of the State of Indiana at the State Convention in June. She holds a bachelor's degree from Tennessee State University and two master's degrees from Indiana State University, was a teacher and school administrator for 35 years, and owns her own business that specializes in instructional curriculum consulting. She is a respected community leader and advocate who served one term on the Marion Common Council (2012–16) and is currently president of the Marion Branch of the NAACP and the Marion Grant County Minority Health Coalition.
We've found her to be an inspiring woman who champions asking hard questions of those in power and has the experience and record to continue doing just that.
Bring your checkbooks, bring your plastic! We'll be bundling checks for Joselyn that day to show support for this incredible Democratic woman tackling a state wide race.
Joselyn Whitticker will also be available for lunch on Friday, a more intimate chance to meet and talk with her. The lunch will be at Grazie's and we will order off the menu. If you would like to attend please let us know at [email protected] as it will help us keep track of the head count for the restaurant. Again, bring your checkbook so that we can bundle checks for Joselyn!
NOTE: We will also be conducting an endorsement vote at Friday breakfast. A separate message will be sent to members regarding the candidates and voting procedures.
A bit more information on our Women's Equality Celebration
It's been our tradition since we began the DWC to celebrate Women's Equality Day -- the day set aside to commemorate the passage of the 19th amendment to the US Constitution that prohibits states and the federal government from denying the right to vote on the basis of sex.
This year's event will be a fundraiser gathering** on Friday, August 24th at 7pm at the Fields. State Representative Linda Lawson will be our keynote speaker. We'll have a special message coming very soon with all the details about this event.
Rumor has it there may be a signature cocktail being developed for this event... the 19th Amendment!
If you would like to sponsor or help with this event PLEASE volunteer! [email protected]
One more thing...
Regina Moore has the idea of creating a Women's Campaigns T-shirt Quilt as a raffle fundraiser** for the DWC. She needs campaign t-shirts from women candidates, and if you have an old one that you don't use please consider donating it to the cause. It doesn't even matter if they're all blue! email [email protected]
You can bring any you have to Breakfast or Lunch on Friday.
**Our activities supporting our endorsed candidates this fall will have some expenses, especially if we do a postcard mailing as we have done in the past. The DWC has also supported women candidates with cash depending on the campaign need, etc. It's a huge year for women candidates, so please think about how you can help with these activities!
