Summer is almost here, and that means vacation and relaxation for many! But along with the fun, we at WOW Dems offer you the following important and timely programs, especially in light of the recent disturbing events in McKinney. Please join us…
June 11 WOW Dems General Meeting
Come and listen to John Fullinwider co-founder of Mothers Against Police Brutality (MAPB) speak about the problem of police brutality in our society today. Mothers Against Police Brutality is an emerging, Dallas-based, multi-racial, multi-ethnic coalition uniting people nationally from all walks of life to hold law enforcement agencies more accountable. Collette Flanagan founded MAPB in 2013 after her son, Clinton Allen, an unarmed young man in custody, was shot to death by a Dallas police officer. MAPB is leading the way to change deadly force policy throughout the US and to help restore trust between the police and the communities they are sworn to serve and protect.

Time to Renew Your Membership
WOW Dems relies on membership donations to pay for our regular operating expenses. Please log on here to renew your membership for 2015 or to join for the first time. Our goal is to increase the number of women who are interested in learning more about the political process and possibly running for office. Our best recruiting tool is word of mouth so we encourage you to bring a friend to a meeting or event. Let’s make a concerted effort to expand our membership in 2015. Thanks for your support.
WOW Dems – How to Get Involved
