Thanks to all of you who attended last night’s meeting and contributed to a powerful evening. Melissa was an amazing speaker whose message of survival and empowerment couldn’t have been more timely. @Jessica’s presentation on domestic violence policy was illuminating, as ever, and @Sylvia Squire’s poem ended the evening on a touching and inspiring note. I also hope my update on women candidates left you feeling both hopeful and determined in the final countdown to the midterms.
As promised, I’m sharing my presentation and cheat sheet on the closest races with Democratic women here. I imagine we’ll also add them to the WC website, but with only 19 days until the midterms, I wanted to make sure you had quick and easy access to them. For those of you who couldn’t make the meeting, the main message is we REALLY need more women in office (duh!). They need us as women voters and supporters. And though the record number of women running is certainly cause for celebration, many are running in tough races and we need to get fully behind them now to assure their victories. Many thanks for your interest and above all, your action. Any questions, feel free to send me a DM.
