Everything about being a woman is inherently political - from the clothes we wear to the careers we pursue to the decisions we make about our bodies to the ways we raise our families. In the age of Trump and as Republicans wage war on women in Congress, we have to remain steadfast in our commitment to one another, and that means actively talking about the issues that affect us and taking action.
That's why we are launching The Future Is Female Symposium! Our kickoff event is April 1, from 9AM-12PM. Hear from Dallas County Democratic Party Chair Carol Donovan, Commissioner Elba Garcia, CEO of Match.com Mandy Ginsberg, Founder & CEO of Guidrr Aassia Haq, and Former Mayor of Colleyville Dr. Donna Arp Weitzman about celebrating, uplifting, supporting, and empowering women. We will also have a "volunteer fair" with different women's organizations that you can sign up to volunteer with or donate to, as well as an hour of networking with complementary champagne!

We couldn't be more excited about this series! Each month, we will have speakers come out to discuss a specific issue that affects women*, with an opportunity for Q&A and networking. This is a safe space for learning and exchanging ideas, and everyone is welcome to attend! Entry is $15, but no one will be turned away because they can't pay. The first 100 people who sign up will get a homemade "pussy hat." Sign up now before they run out!
