Join Us: Winning with Women


Date: Friday, October 4
Time: 6:00 – 9:00 pm

When women run for office, they win just as often as men win. So why aren’t there more women in office? Because they don’t run. Join Congresswoman Diana DeGette, State Representative Leslie Herod, and former State Attorney General Cynthia Coffman in a panel discussion and networking event aimed at demystifying the process of running for office.
