April 2019 Meeting

Get Involved Locally

Saturday April 6, 2019

 The November mid-term elections were a watershed moment for women! Americans
elected more women from throughout the country to hold positions in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, as well as in state and local levels. Women are taking their places in powerful positions in all levels of government.

Despite winning the right to vote almost one hundred years ago, we find that we are still surprised at the most recent election results. Since the 1960s, women throughout the country have been increasingly involved in local and state politics, and they have made a difference. We keep coming closer to having our first woman president, a goal already achieved by 56 other countries in the world. We remain hopeful that our time is growing near.

The speakers at our Branch Meeting will be locally elected women involved on school boards and city councils. They are now part of the leadership in Long Beach and Lakewood. We look forward to hearing from Megan Kerr – Member of the Board, Long Beach Unified School District; Sunny Zia – President, Long Beach Community College District Board of Trustees; and Lena Gonzales – Long Beach City 1st District Councilwoman.

Please join us on Saturday April 6. Bring your daughters, granddaughters and your young friends who might have some political aspirations themselves. The doors are now opening wide for women in politics. Women will shape America and its leadership role in the world!




Please RSVP by March 29th
