We have some fantastic speakers from across Idaho and the country that are scheduled to share how “Build Back Better” with our new President at this year’s Virtual Brunch & Annual Meeting. The speakers for this year’s event are Virgie Rollins, Representative Muffy Davis, Representative Sally Toone, Representative Illana Rubel, Betty Richardson, and Julianna Roosevelt. Our annual meeting will be held on March 14, 2021 via Zoom.
Virgie Rollins, Chair of the DNC Black Caucus and National Federation of Democratic Women DNC Member, is going to share her experience on the campaign trail and the importance of promoting minority voices. Idaho House Minority Leader Ilana Rubel will discuss the effects of the Republican super-majority on working people across our state. Representative Muffy Davis will share her personal story of adversity and triumph along with her experience as a legislator during the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, Betty Richardson, the first female U.S. Attorney for the District of Idaho, will review the progress of the Idaho Women for Biden Harris Facebook group and how we can all help make our country better regardless of political affiliation.
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.
