Velma Veloria—former state representative from the 11th LD invites you to a workshop at US 3/12/2011
HOW CAN WOMEN CHANGE THE WORLD? RUN FOR PUBLIC OFFICE!
With high-profile women in the news and record-breaking numbers of women on the 2010 ballots, we might think that we have arrived. Think again! While women are about 51 percent of the U.S. population, they make up just 17 percent in the U.S. Congress. The Inter-Parliamentary Union reports that the United States is currently ranking 72th in the world for the percentage of women in Congress.
Join women from public and private sectors in strategic discussions and action for positive change.
Date: Saturday, March 12, 2011
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Place: University of Washington Women’s Center, Cunningham Hall on 15th Ave/41st Avenue, Seattle, WA
