LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear SLDW Members and Friends,

We urge all Valley-Shoreline Democratic women to get involved with our great organization. We may be down, be we are surely not out. It is time to re-energize, re-organize and take our fight to the source of bad policies holding women down. Deeds not words will change our world. #RESIST!

Well behaved women rarely make history...so let's take a strong stand for Women's rights, healthcare, and equality. It is time to smash the glass ceiling once and for all.

Sisterhood, Solidarity, Sanity and Science,

Belinda Jones, President, Shoreline League of Democratic Women
