CDWC's event calendar is here.  

The CDWC is excited and honored to be a part of a group of people who have followed Rep. Jamie Raskin’s work on behalf of a stronger democracy over the years.
As you may know, he represents Maryland's 8th District and is currently a member of the U.S. House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol. You may also know that Rep. Raskin lost his beloved son Tommy, 25, to suicide, just days before the insurrection.

Rep. Raskin will be online with friends across the country for a 45-minute informal discussion on his new book Unthinkable: Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy on Thursday, January 27, at 6:00 pm ET via Zoom.
We invite you to join us. It is not required that you read the book ahead of time.

Please register so we will know how many to expect.

Message from the CDWC Chair:

Dear CDWC Members and Friends,

The Cuyahoga Democratic Women’s Caucus Steering Committee has completed a review and update of its Bylaws. The Bylaws are on our website and can be viewed here.

With this email, we are announcing a new procedure for an Annual Meeting and notice of the opportunity to express interest in serving as an At Large Member of our Steering Committee. From time to time, we have received questions as to how members can be more involved. We hope that this process will reach more members and encourage them to step forward. As outlined below, those interested will be able to submit information and speak with members of the Nominating Committee.

The 2022 Annual Meeting will take place on February 24, 2022, at 7:00 pm, via Zoom, and will include election of up to five (5) At Large Members of the CDWC Steering Committee. The balance of the Steering Committee members and the Executive Officers will be up for election at the Annual Meeting in 2023.

The CDWC Executive Officers include Cynthia Demsey, Chair; Kim Thomas, Treasurer; Jane Buder Shapiro, Recording Secretary; Susan Stechschulte, Vice Chair/Membership; and Linda Striefsky, Vice Chair/Operations.

We all owe a debt of gratitude and appreciation to all our current Steering Committee members: Kim Thomas, Juanita Brent, Crystal Bryant, Jane Buder Shapiro, Karolyn Isenhart, Lana Moresky, Susan Moran Palmer, Monique Smith, Susan Stechschulte, Linda Striefsky, Meredith Turner, Sandi White, and Leslie White-Wilson.
