2021 NFDW Western Regional Conference

This year’s Western Regional Conference will be held via Zoom due to the pandemic.

Details about the agenda and how to register will be posted later this month.

A Virtual Event Honoring RBG

We know that people are busy these days, but we hope that you will take the time to join us in a virtual discussion on the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Her death has made it very clear what is at stake in the November 2020 election and the importance of making every vote count.

It will be held on October 19, 2020 from 6pm to 7:30pm MST via Zoom. 

We will be asking women leaders how RBG impacted their opportunities, what they feel needs the most protection, and calls to action that we can take between now and Election Day. Please plan to join us!
