The 2011 Fem Dems Spring Reception and Silent Auction was held Thursday, April 28th at the Barton Art Gallery in Sacramento.
We were pleased to award Speaker pro Tempore Fiona Ma the Honorary Fem Dem of the Year award for her tireless advocacy of electing women to office.
The 2011 Fem Dems Spring Reception and Silent Auction celebrated Democratic women in politics and provided an opportunity to meet, connect, and network in support of one another. All proceeds from the event will go to two new initiatives to support the cause of gender parity in politics:
1. The new Fem Dems PAC, which will support women candidates in their campaigns for elected office; and
2. A comprehensive, on-line directory of women in the business of getting Democratic women elected.
We are pleased to provide this unique service free to the public to showcase the many women-owned political consulting, polling, fundraising and lobbying firms that have trail- blazed in this traditionally male profession. This wonderful resource will help women candidates and candidates who support women’s rights find a winning campaign team!
Thank you again to all who came and showed support.
