The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus wholeheartedly invite Democratic Women throughout Idaho to our Annual Membership Meeting. This year’s meeting will be held on March 14, 2021 at 12pm. It will be a virtual event this year via Zoom due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Tickets to the meeting are $20.00 per person and can be bought on Eventbrite.
This year’s theme will be how women can help “Build Back Better” after 4 years of craziness coming from DC. Our guests include National Federation of Democratic Women President Cindy Jenks, and DNC Black Caucus Chair Virgie Rollins among many others. We also plan to announce the winners of our annual awards, which honor the great and amazing Democratic women across Idaho.
We encourage all Idahoans to join our organization and to work together in electing more Democratic Women into public office. To become a member or renew your existing membership, you must complete the Registration Form and pay the annual membership dues. Annual membership dues are $20. Seniors (65 and older) and students can join for $10.
Do you know a great Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus member that you feel has made a difference in her community in 2020?
We are requesting nominations for our Dottie Stimpson Award (aka “worker bee” award), the Marguerite McLaughlin Award (the elected official award), and the Distinguished Young Woman Award (for those 35 and younger). The deadline is February 12th! If so, please take a moment to nominate her using this link.
If you need descriptions on these three awards, please visit: https://idwc.org/awards/. We look forward to learning all about the amazing Democratic women that we have in Idaho!
This year’s Western Regional Conference will be held via Zoom due to the pandemic. This opportunity also affords those who otherwise would not be able to attend a chance to participate and voice their opinions. It will be held on Saturday, January 31, 2021 from 12p to 2p MST. Details about the agenda and how to register will be posted later this month.
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!
