It’s Time to Fall Into WIN!
From October 21-28, WIN will host its annual Week of WIN–a fantastic line-up of WIN programming to highlight the work of WIN’s networks, political teams, Professional Development Series and Linking Leaders series.
This is your opportunity, whether you are a new or old member, to Fall into WIN. Attend Week of WIN events and get the most out of your membership. There is something for everyone, whether you’re looking to canvass for a local campaign, improve your cover letter and writing samples, attend a lunch discussion or just pick apples! The week also begins and ends with membership-wide networking opportunities!
Week of WIN also completes our October membership recruitment drive. Don’t forget to share WIN with other pro-choice, Democratic women in DC and invite them to join you at any Week of WIN event.
We look forward to falling with you!
