Women in Politics Panel Discussion

Guest Event


Join DemBiz for this special event, co-sponsored by 1776, to hear about what women are doing across the nation and here in Virginia and how we can support them. Emily Cain, Executive Director of Emily’s List, Jessica Post, Executive Director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and Delegate Charniele Herring, Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Delegate will join a panel moderated by Virginia’s List Chair (and DemBiz board member) Julie Jakopic.

Since 2016 we have seen a blue wave of Democratic women successfully running for office, starting with 11 women flipping House seats in Virginia in 2017. In 2019, we have the opportunity to continue the path and keep the energy going with more than 60 women on the Virginia General Assembly primary and general election ballot.
