Event description

Description

This luncheon is a celebration of the incredible momentum women have created in speaking truth to power and increasing their representation at all levels of our government. Our theme this year is Women Will...Stand Up, Speak Up, & Show Up. We thought this to be an appropriate theme for our annual fundraising luncheon for two reasons:

  1. On a national scale, it started with the largest protest march in history with the Women’s March in 2017, and was energized through empowerment of the #MeToo Movement, is just that --- Women Standing Up, Speaking Up, and Showing Up. As a result we have unprecednted civic engagement and a record number of women candidates at all levels of government.
  2. At a local level, we have seen our organization grow exponentially, in an region not known for progressive political activism. The Fayette Democratic Women is living the theme, and committed more than ever to supporting a victory for Democratic candidates in local, statewide, and national and the opportunity to turn Georgia Blue – again!.

Join us on August 25th! Come share a Saturday afternoon with like minded and engaged women (and men) who living examples of our Theme: Women Will... Stand Up, Speak Up, and Show Up.
