Monday Morning News 08/20/18 - Special Edition - Women's Equality Day Celebration



We're celebrating Friday!
You need to be there!!
You need to bring a friend!!


Having just returned from the IDEA last weekend, and watching Vi Simpson receive the Lee H. Hamilton Public Service Award, we feel fired up and are excited to have another chance to gather with other Democrats and to celebrate our candidates. On Friday, August 24th we'll be celebrating Women's Equality Day with a reception and special guest Linda Lawson. A true champion for women, and coming from a non-traditional career for women, Linda has a unique perspective on Women's Equality and why we need to remember the Women's Suffrage HerStory #NowMoreThanEver!.

DWC Women's Equality Day Celebration and Fundraiser: #NowMoreThanEver!
The Fields, 1333 S Fenbrook Lane

Tickets $45 per person
all proceeds will go towards the critical work of the DWC
in helping to support our endorsed candidates

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 which granted American women the right to vote.

State Representative Linda Lawson will be our keynote speaker!

Linda has served for 20 years as the representative from District 1, the Hammond area. She was the FIRST woman hired as an officer by the Hammond Police Department and served for 24 years. In her work for families, she has authored an equal pay bill each of her 20 years in the state legislature. None of them were heard. We need this kind of work #NowMoreThanEver!!

Supporting our endorsed candidates this fall will generate 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!

BUY at least 1 ticket for the #NowMoreThanEver DWC fundraiser!
Then get one for a friend….
Tickets can also be purchased from any DWC Steering Committee Member
