Sunday Community Dinner: Women and Legislation

  • 2019 Crawford Street Houston, TX, 77002 United States (map)

At this public community dinner, Houston Women’s March invites all interested to an evening of conversation and connection as we take stock of the vision for change achieved at the 1977 National Women’s Conference and the new concerns of 2017.  Original planks will be considered during a national crowdsourcing event held simultaneous to this gathering. The Houston community dinner will especially honor former participants in town for University of Houston’s two-day commemorative conference.  To participate in Houston’s onsite community dinner, click here.

You've heard the saying "If you're not at the table, you're on the menu...."

For too long, women have been on the menu, as others have written and passed legislation with far-reaching effects on our lives. It's time to reclaim our seats at the table, and starting writing and passing the legislation that will change the future for the better.

In 1977, the duly elected participants for the one and only national convening of women delegates (held in Houston, Texas) created 26 legislative planks - 25 of which concerned issues ranging from domestic violence to equal pay to gender identity.

Do you think we've made progress on these 25 issues? Take the survey here and tell us what you believe should be our priorities going forward.

Then sign up to join us Sunday, November 5th in Houston and take your seat at the table with women from around the country who will help decide the legislation women across our nation will begin to prioritize and push for inclusion in states and in the US Congress.

Come to the table. Work on issues with us. VOTE. This is how we change the world, together.
