Women Winning is thrilled to announce its 37th Annual Luncheon, featuring Congresswoman Maxine Waters. The event will be held on Monday, June 17, 2019 at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot.
“We are honored to welcome Congresswoman Waters to Minnesota for Women Winning’s 37th Annual Luncheon,” said Meggie Wittorf, Executive Director of Women Winning. “She is a fierce advocate for women’s rights and has been an inspiration for countless women who have stepped up to run for — and win — elected office. In 2018, Minnesota made significant strides for pro-choice women’s representation and tripled the number of pro-choice women in our Congressional delegation. We are thrilled that this year’s Annual Luncheon will feature one of the strongest, most influential congresswomen in the nation.”
Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California is one of the most powerful women in American politics, and is currently serving her fifteenth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. She has gained a reputation as a fearless and outspoken advocate for women, children, people of color, and the poor. In 2019, Congresswoman Waters made history as the first woman and first African American Chair of the House Financial Services Committee. Known for her tenacity, she made the procedural interruption “reclaiming my time” a viral catchphrase and has been a vocal critic of the Trump Administration. Long active in the women’s movement, Congresswoman Waters is co-founder of Los Angeles’ Black Women’s Forum and has been a mentor and inspiration to countless women seeking public office. In 2018, she was named one of TIME’s “100 Most Influential People”.
The Women Winning Annual Luncheon is a gathering of more than 1,100 women, men, and allies to support Women Winning’s mission to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice women to all levels of public office. The Annual Luncheon allows Women Winning to keep our robust, one-of-a-kind candidate training and development programming completely free of charge for all pro-choice women — breaking down barriers that have traditionally prevented women from engaging in the political process.
