April 2019 Newsletter Print

President's Message

Dear Ladies of Influence,

It is my hope that you have set your internal clocks to Daylight Saving Time and are working on all the fresh starts spring offers.

We are excited to announce our first members-only program of the year and on April 18 we will learn more about a very important topic (Human Trafficking) and specifically hear from an actual survivor. Please support this program by registering to attend and also hear from Dr. Lawanda Ravoira, of the Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center who works on behalf of these young women. I also encourage you to continue to support our very own, JWN Member Kristin Keen, who works hard to bring attention to this issue through her organization, Rethreaded. 

I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Warmest regards,
