The time leading up to and following the 2016 US elections at the federal, state and local levels might best be described as complicated. Please join us for a potluck dinner hosted by Nina Lester (’82) and a discussion about the current US political climate led by fellow alumna, Theresa Stephen (’92). Participants are encouraged to bring all points of view.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org by October 31; open to Yale alumnae only (no guests) – attendance capped at 20. Please request the address and directions directly from Nina.
Pot-luck contributions: Please request the website through which you can sign up for pot-luck contributions from Nina in your RSVP.
We encourage all YaleWomen Ontario members to suggest or organize future events; please contact any of us with your ideas, or feedback on past events.
**** Founded in 2011, YaleWomen is a community of alums – at the global and chapter levels – across Yale College and the Graduate & Professional Schools, and across years, geography and personal and professional interests as well as a broad range of different experiences, perspectives, and opinions. As part of its mission, YaleWomen is committed to advancing women’s voices and perspectives. YaleWomen encourages its members at the global, national, and local levels to advance the issues they believe in by engaging in the public policy and electoral process, advocating for changes in particular areas of society, and providing education about such matters. As a 501c3, YaleWomen must do so within the constraints imposed by IRS rules regarding prohibiting lobbying, advocacy, and partisan activity. One of YaleWomen’s greatest strengths is inclusivity – bringing together and learning from the plurality of our voices, in ways that are both respectful and civil. Inclusivity is, in fact, one of YaleWomen’s core values. The plurality of voices – Yale women alums’ voices – produces democracy! ****
