Looking to make change this year?
Attend the YWCA’s “Resolve to Resist” series
Resolve to Resist: A Civic Engagement Series is two sessions to encourage women, and others, who don’t see themselves represented in the political arena to take the lead. The first session is Thursday, February 8, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Multicultural Service Center, 4610 S.E. Belmont Street.
Session 1: Warm Up and Stretch is for people curious to get appointed and serve on local commissions, boards, and task forces. It will cover:
- Getting appointed to local leadership opportunities
- Serving on local commissions, boards, and task forces
- Expectations, opportunities and barriers to civic involvement
Hear how others have done it: how they started and what their journeys looked like. Learn about culturally and gender-specific resources and leadership programs available to help you GET READY to RUN! Both sessions are informative and interactive.
For more information about the session, including accessibility accommodation, requesting childcare, and registration, visit the Resolve to Resist: Session 1 website.
