IDWC Annual Breakfast Meeting-Women Organize for Action

Annual Breakfast Meeting

Sunday, March 11, 2018 | 9 am | $25
Red Lion Hotel Boise Downtowner, 1800 Fairview Ave, Boise.

Women Organize for Action

Over the past year, America saw women organize for action. The strength of this effort was confirmed by the 2 nd Anniversary of the Women’s March on Washington. This universal action was marked with concurrent marches around the country including here in Boise at the State Capital. These marches drew thousands of women and men together to demonstrate for Women’s Empowerment. More importantly, this historic civil rights movement emboldened women around the country to take a greater role in our political process. In fact, more women than ever before are running for elective office. The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus celebrates this momentous change. Furthermore, the IDWC is fully committed to making this potential political shift a reality.

Consequently, we wholeheartedly invite Democratic Women throughout Idaho to show their support by gathering with us for our Annual Membership Meeting on March 11. If you believe in electing more Democratic Women to public office, we need you to join our organization and participate in making it a reality.

To become a member, you must complete the Registration Form and pay member dues. Annual membership dues are $20. Seniors (65>) and students can join for $10.

The Registration Form includes options to either join the caucus or renew an existing membership. Completing this section of the form is only necessary if you are registering as a new member or renewing your membership.

If you intend to participate in the annual meeting, please check the box to include payment for the breakfast. Meeting admission, including the breakfast, is $25.  Although we would love to see you, attending the annual breakfast is not a prerequisite for membership.
