The Media and Communications Committee (MCC) informs the DAUK Women’s Caucus about political topics, events, and stories of relevance to our membership. We prioritize content generated by our own members, as well as content created by like-minded individuals and organizations. We maintain our social media presence and website, and distribute a newsletter to the caucus the first week of every month. We are always looking for new ways to educate, engage and activate the DAUK Women’s Caucus and we love highlighting new and diverse voices.
We meet each month on the fourth Monday, alternating between conference calls and face-to-face gatherings. To join our efforts or attend a meeting, please email email@example.com. To learn more in the meanwhile please ‘Follow’ us on Twitter or ‘Like’ us on Facebook!
