Message from Karen Humphrey, Sacramento Chapter President
This is an update about forthcoming events for the National Women’s Political Caucus of Sacramento. In this momentous year for electing women—the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote—NWPC is focused on the task of increasing the number of progressive, pro-choice women attaining political power.
Here are upcoming events you don’t want to miss:
Wednesday, February 26, 2020 – 5:30 to 7:30pm (program at 6pm) – NWPC General Membership meeting – Sutter Place Condominiums on K Street between 18th and 19th(see attached flyer for address and entry information). Elect a new board and officers, meet some of our endorsed candidates, hold a straw poll for President, and much more—including food! All are welcome—only NWPC members can vote, but come if you want to know more and get involved with a great organization. Check our website at www.sacnwpc.org for the list of nominees. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to say you’ll attend.
Tuesday, March 3, 2020 – California Primary Election – make sure you vote for our endorsed candidates if you live in their districts, and help us move some great women to the November General Election. Check Voter Registration & Elections for Sacramento County for more information on voter registration, voting centers, and ballot deadlines.
Saturday, March 21, 2020 – Sierra 2 Center, (address) – 8:30am to 5pm – Campaign Leadership Training, including lunch and reception. Learn about the key positions in grassroots campaigns and hear experts explain what the jobs require and how you can learn more about becoming a key staff leader in campaigns, especially women’s campaigns. See the attached flyer and go to California NWPC to register.
Finally—this is a short note of gratitude from your outgoing president (yes, that’s me). I have so appreciated all those who have contributed time, effort and money, attended events, and kept NWPC Sacramento going. I offer a special thanks to those who are refreshing NWPC with our partners in the Capital Women’s Campaign and helping us move into a very exciting 2020. Thanks for letting me be your local president. Although I’m retiring from that job, I will continue to be involved—and so must you.
If you’re mad about politics in the U.S. right now, the solution is to elect more women—preferably progressive women! That’s our job in NWPC. Please jump in and support the new leadership team and help change the face of politics in Sacramento, California and the nation!
