A Seat at the Table: A Fund for a Feminist Future
You are invited to a launch party for SBWPC’s newest project "A Seat at the Table: A Fund for a Feminist Future”
A Fund for a Feminist Future (FFF) will promote progressive, feminist political involvement where issues important to women and families are raised and discussed, policies made and legislation enacted. To this end, funds generated by FFF will be used exclusively to provide the tools and knowledge necessary to run for office, seek appointment on boards and commissions or other political positions. This will include presenting programs and workshops and awarding scholarships to qualified SBWPC women members interested in getting involved in the political process to attend such workshops and programs beyond our immediate region. Additionally, FFF will increase our donations capacity to the campaigns of feminist political candidates endorsed by SBWPC.
FFF will be sustained by targeted financial gifts large and small, and by grants and fundraising activities.
When: Saturday, August 26, 2017, from 11:00am to 1:00pm
Where: The Home of Susan Rose and Allan Ghitterman , 928 Las Palmas Drive, Santa Barbara
