The Center for Women & Democracy was founded to advance women’s leadership, participation, and representation in local and global affairs.

We’re back

With the seating of the full board on January 21st, CWD has returned from its hiatus.

Since then, the new board has continued to meet and plan programs that are the heart of our mission to foster womxn’s leadership and advance womxn’s equality. We joined countless others in trying to figure out how to navigate personal, social, political, and economic changes in a COVID-19 defined world. We too were outraged by the murder of George Floyd and other Black men and women. Structural racism and police brutality require concerted effort to address racial injustices and we are committed to using our position and privilege to do better.

We cannot predict what will happen in the future but we can promise to turn this moment in our shared history into an opportunity to ensure that womxn’s leadership and voices are heard and valued. The CWD board has used the past five months to plan our role moving forward and rewritten our mission and values statements.

We thank you all for your continued support. Join us for virtual events in 2020.
