DemDaily: Women at the Head of the Table
October 18, 2019
Last night closed out a week of DNC events, from Ohio to DC, wrapping up with the Women's Leadership Forum's (WLF) annual training and issues conference in Washington, DC.
|The Women's Leadership Forum (WLF) serves as the Democratic Party's centralized hub for activism, information, and fundraising for Democratic women and their allies
The WLF works to close the gender gap by raising funds for the DNC, which, in turn, engages women activists at the grassroots level.
Throughout the year they provide policy and platform discussions, organize regional and national events, trainings and networking opportunities, as well as regular informational briefs, talking points, and rapid response information.Wednesday's "Training Day" included sessions on Organizing, Fundraising, Messaging and Social Media, and Local Elected office.
Special Guests: Speaker Nancy Pelosi * Vice President Joe Biden * Senator Elizabeth Warren* Senator Tammy Duckworth * Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congresswomen Cindy Axne * Cheri Bustos * Judy Chu * Sharice Davids * Veronica Escobar * Abby Finkenauer * Deb Haaland * Jahana Hayes * Katie Hill * Chrissy Houlahan * Elaine Luria * Debbie Mucarsel-Powell * Katie Porter * Ayanna Pressley * Mikie Sherrill * Elissa Slotkin * Abigail Spanberger * Haley Stevens * Lauren Underwood.Thursday's Conference covered topics from winning the House and red states, to breaking barriers, protecting the vote and profiling "Badass Women" leaders.
Day Two included a host of speakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Joe Biden and DNC Chair Tom Perez.
Last night's Women Will Vote Gala, at the Newseum, featured Senator Elizabeth Warren as keynote speaker.
|"In the Democratic House Majority, women just don't have a seat at the table, they have a seat at the head of the table. In the House, seven women hold the gavel as Chairs of our committees and 39 women head subcommittees." -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
WLF is led by Director Blaire Goodrick and a Steering Committee including Cynthia Friedman, Virginia McGregor, Jo Ousterhout, Carol Pensky and Diane Robertson.For information on WLF, contact: Blaire Goodrick at email@example.com
