It is a Time for Action

Our current political climate is fraught with uncertainty. Yet, it also offers an opportunity. Recent actions like the Women’s March on Washington have exposed the deep seated desire of millions of women (and many men) to organize against our current political leadership. It is a chance to effect change by taking a greater role in the political process. The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus exists for this purpose. It is calling on motivated Democratic Women in Idaho to assemble at the Annual Membership Meeting on March 12. Together, we can change Idaho’s Government from the inside out.
