Dems After Dark: Women’s History Month 2024
March 14 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
@ Twisted Track Brewpub, 523 Shenandoah Ave NW, Roanoke, VA 24016
Join us in celebration of Women’s History Month 2024. Please consider donating individually wrapped snacks for Turning Point Domestic Violence Shelter afterschool program.
We draw our inspiration for the evening from the National Women’s History Alliance whose 2024 theme for this year celebrates “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.”
From the NWHA: “Today, equity, diversity and inclusion are powerful driving forces that are having a wide-ranging impact on our country. As members of families, civic and community groups, businesses and legislative bodies, women are in the forefront of reevaluating the status quo. They are looking anew at what harmful social policies and behaviors exist and, often subtly, determine our future. In response, women in communities across the nation are helping to develop innovative programs and projects within corporations, the military, federal agencies and educational organizations to address these injustices.
“It takes courage for women to advocate for practical goals like equity, diversity and inclusion when established forces aim to misinterpret, exploit or discredit them. Throughout 2024, we honor local women from the past and present who have taken the lead to show the importance of change and to establish firmer safeguards, practices and legislation reflecting these values. Following decades of discrimination, we are proud to celebrate women who work for basic inclusion, equality and fairness.”
