36th Annual Luncheon Featuring Valerie Jarrett

For 36 years, Women Winning has been moving the needle on women’s representation in Minnesota and 2018 is our biggest year yet. The stakes have never been higher and women across the state have stepped up to run for all levels of public office. In November, we have the chance to change the face of power and Women Winning is ALL IN.

Join us at Women Winning’s 36th Annual Luncheon to celebrate our progress and rededicate yourself to the important work that lies ahead. Come together and show your support for the inspiring pro-choice women candidates who will represent all of us at City Hall, the Capitol, and in Congress.
