What exciting times! First, we are elated that the Supreme Court ruled 5-3 to overturn HB2, the Texas law that Wendy Davis filibustered 3 years ago. The court recognized that this law was a sham and was not really meant to protect women’s health, but instead imposed an undue burden on a woman’s constitutional right to have an abortion. What a victory for the women of Texas! Let us continue to stand up for women’s rights just as Wendy Davis did, by helping elect progressive Democratic women and men who will fight for our rights (and choose brilliant Supreme Court Justices who will do the same.)
Congratulations to our WOW Dems members who won election and are going to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July! Rebecca Arredondo, Lynn Wolfe, and James White are Hillary National Delegates. Kristi Lara and Samantha Morrow are Bernie National Delegates.
We had a great time at the state convention in San Antonio, with many WOW Dems attending as delegates for the first time, some running for positions on committees at the convention. Celeste Kennedy, Nancy Bryant, Lynn Wolfe, Sharon Hirsch and I were just a few who won committee positions. Congratulations to Sharon Hirsch, past president of WOW Dems who will be the new State Democratic Executive Committeewoman from SD8!
We are proud to be Women Organizing Women Democrats. We organized, supported each other and won just about every position in which we were running!
