TIME: Bar opens at 6:00pm. Program begins at 7:00pm, followed by book signing
EVENT TYPE: Speaker Reception
Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from two of the principals in the resistance, Bob Bland, co-organizer of the Women’s March on Washington, and Amy Siskind, author of The List and president of The New Agenda. They will discuss not only the backstory about the march but also the explosive energy generated by the march, which has empowered women to become even more politically engaged nationwide.
The book, Together We Rise, was compiled by Women’s March organizers, in partnership with Condé Nast and Glamour magazine. Published for the one-year anniversary of the march, the book is the complete chronicle of this remarkable uprising. For the first time, Women’s March organizers tell their personal stories and reflect on their collective journey in an oral history written by Jamia Wilson, writer, activist, and director of The Feminist Press. They provide an inside look at how the idea for the event originated, how it was organized, how it became a global movement that surpassed their wildest expectations, and how they are sustaining and building on the widespread outrage, passion, and determination that sparked it.
The book will be available for purchase and signing.
PRICE: $20 Members; $25 Non-members. $15 Young Dems. Includes hors d’oeuvres. Cash bar.
