39th Annual Luncheon Featuring United States Senator Tammy Duckworth

We are thrilled to announce that the Women Winning Annual Luncheon is back, and U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth will be the featured speaker at the 39th Annual Luncheon! We hope you will join us to celebrate historic pro-choice women’s victories and to recommit yourself to the critical work ahead.

For 39 years, Women Winning has been building a movement of more than 19,000 inspired members united in our work to recruit, train, and elect pro-choice women to all levels of public office, from park board to President of the United States.

Pro-choice women shattered ceilings, flipped seats, and saved majorities in the 2020 Election. But this fall, Trump’s anti-choice Supreme Court is set to hear a case that could gut Roe v. Wade. If they succeed, access to abortion will be left in the hands of state lawmakers — and every single seat in the Minnesota House and Senate is up for election in 2022 because of redistricting. Together, we are protecting reproductive rights and unapologetically changing the face of power for generations to come.

 

Meet Our Speaker

U.S. Senator Duckworth HeadshotUnited States Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) is a former U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who has served as the junior United States Senator for Illinois since 2017. A proud Iraq War veteran and helicopter pilot, she represented Illinois’s 8th district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2013 to 2017.

In 2018, after Tammy became the first U.S. Senator to give birth while serving in office, she worked to change Senate rules to allow Senators to bring their infant children onto the Senate floor as they do their job voting on issues of national importance — sending a message that all workplaces should be family-friendly. She has since passed several pieces of legislation making traveling easier for new moms and people with disabilities.

Senator Duckworth is focused on helping working families get ahead through job development programs, protecting Social Security and Medicare, promoting civil rights and equal rights, advocating for environmental justice, and supporting our Veterans and military families.

Tammy lives with her husband Bryan, their two daughters Abigail and Maile, and her mother Lamai.
