    Women of Ward 6 Initiative

    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.

    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electing the officers who will lead us for the next two years and, this year, voting on critical updates to our badly outdated bylaws, which were last revised in 2003.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.
