Women of Ward 6 is a non-partisan monthly recognition of Ward 6’s women, sponsored by the Ward 6 Democrats. This effort, in partnership with the National Woman’s Party, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society and the Hill Rag, will culminate in the 2020 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
We will be recognizing women of Ward 6 – current or historical who lives or works in Ward 6 – for the significant contributions to better our lives. Follow along as we honor these women as part of our Women of Ward 6 Initiative here.Know of a Woman of Ward 6 you’d like to nominate for this honor? Send an email to email@example.com.
This month the Ward 6 Dems are honoring Jackie Von Schlegel (1939-2016) as June's Woman of Ward 6. Jackie Felty Von Schlegel was a longtime Capitol Hill realtor who was born in eastern Tennessee.
Thank you to everyone who turned out for our biennial convention on Saturday, June 22.
Our revised bylaws passed on a voice vote. Our 2019-2021 officers are listed below:
The Ward 6 Democrats will be holding our biennial convention on Saturday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m. SHARP. This important meeting is convened every two years so we can conduct the business of the organization: electing the officers who will lead us for the next two years and, this year, voting on critical updates to our badly outdated bylaws, which were last revised in 2003.
We need you to plan to attend and vote on these two critical pieces of business.
The Ward 6 Democrats will be voting on proposed revisions to our bylaws on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at our biennial convention, which will take place at Christ Church (620 G Street SE). The convention opens promptly at 10:00 a.m., and voting will be open until 1:00 p.m. Please plan to join us on June 22, and review the revised bylaws in advance and come prepared to cast your vote.
You can review the proposed revisions here.
