To all our Sheroes,
We just want to take a moment to thank you for all your hard work and everything you do.
With COVID-19 demanding the immediate attention of elected women from across the country, we hope you can take a moment to celebrate yourselves. We know you have more important issues at hand, but today is Celebrating Women in Public Office Day, and we wanted to take a moment to say hello, and let you all know we are thinking of you. These are hard times, and we know you’re working harder than the coronavirus. As we celebrate Women’s Suffrage Centennial throughout the year and Women’s History Month throughout March, we hope you know you’re all in our thoughts. We’re so thankful that at this critical point in history, women like you are in office, taking care of their constituents, and leading with poise.
Please stay digitally connected with us! If you have something you think other elected women could benefit from, or just want to share how you’re doing being socially isolated, send it our way! Tag us on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word on any of your initiatives, and use our platform to connect. We’ve included a few things we’re still doing digitally to celebrate, and if the social distancing somehow gives you time on your hands, we hope you can do something celebratory and fun!
Celebrating Women in Public Office is and will always be a part of our mission, and we will continue to celebrate you no matter the circumstances.

Suffrage Centennial with #FlatSusan
We sent out toolkits with materials to all State Directors, and you can instantly download a “Flat Susan” HERE.
We hope to have a picture in every state capital at some point this year, but you can still have fun while session and meetings are on pause and you’re home. Take a #FlatSusan picture of wherever you are and whoever you’re with! Let us know where she is and what she means to you.
