The Second Surge: Women Running for Public Office in the 1970s

March 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Speaker: Jo Ellyn Clarey

Suddenly in the seventies, Kent County women broke through a barrier that had limited their runs for public office mostly to local school board races. They ran for virtually every position on local, county, and state levels, as well as for U.S. Congress. Now, in 2023, celebrate women’s spectacular showings in 2022 – and those of women both before us and to come!

March 15, 2023 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
St. Cecilia Music Center
24 Ransom Ave. NE, Grand Rapids MI 49503
Event is free and open to the public | Wine, beer, hors d’oeuvres served
