You will be inspired! Join us for the Sacramento premiere of “Paving the Way: Women's Struggle for Political Equality in California.” The authors, Steve and Susie Swatt, have written the first-ever history of California women’s fierce and stirring 170-year fight for political equality. They will share the stories of these courageous, trailblazing women, some of them Jewish, who overcame all odds in order to lead.

NCJW founder, Hannah G. Solomon, was one of the earliest Jewish women to run for elected office (in Illinois) in 1904 and 1916. NCJW Sacramento continues in the tradition of Hannah G. Solomon. Help us celebrate her and all women who venture forth.

Books will be available for sale; the authors will donate part of the proceeds to NCJW Sacramento.

NCJW Sacramento is encouraging younger women (and men) who, after all, are our future, to be inspired and motivated to think about being leaders in the world. NCJW Sacramento is offering a special rate of $18.00 for those under the age of 30.

RSVP today!

Thank you for your help in keeping our section strong, and vibrant!
