Board Member and former intern Kira Jones hosted a house party in November in Salt Lake City, Utah.

As the Network launches our 40th anniversary in 2015, we celebrate our history of advocacy and organizing on behalf of all women. Our goal is to honor this milestone by having 40 events in 40 cities to promote our mission and grow our network of supporters.

The 40 for 40 events present an opportunity to share the Network’s important programmatic agenda with your friends, family, and colleagues. Help us build the Network’s visibility, and increase membership in your region by hosting an event!
