The Second Annual Women’s Leadership Circle Luncheon!
The room was filled with well over 130 like-minded supporters –all standing together to advocate for choice. The energy, passion and excitement was palpable, and would not have been possible without your support. The motivational speech from Michele Goodwin tells us that while we have a lot of work to do to protect and promote reproductive justice for everyone in our community and the rest of our country, especially for women of color.
During the program, Professor Michele Goodwin reminded all of us that, “the struggle of women elsewhere is our struggle too.” The discussion of intersectionality is paramount to expand services to better address the emerging needs of our community.
We hope we can continue to count on your support help us move forward to support access to reproductive health care for everyone and to stay vigilant as advocates.
Now, more than ever, we need to rally public support for our mission, and we believe the best place to start is among the strong women who so generously and openly support us now. We know better than to stand idly by while the rights and future of our daughters, nieces, granddaughters, even ourselves, and all women, are in jeopardy. We see this group as part of the solution, and I hope you will consider joining.
As we discussed at the Luncheon, we have a goal of reaching 200 Women’s Leadership Circle Members this year and we will be printing our 2017 WLC Ad in the Times Union in November.
