Dear fellow New Trier Democrats and readers of our Newsletter,

I had the opportunity this fall to work with Sister District in participating in post card writing to elect Democrats to the Virginia State Legislature. We were successful and now there is a good possibility we could get the ERA passed. The post card writing was fun as well as productive and I urge all members to consider participating in their post card events. I want to shout out to fellow member Diane Dorn who did a yeoman’s job at events and on her own writing post cards for Virginia. Proud of your commitment.

If you want to get involved please contact SDGreaterChicago@gmail.com or sisterdistrict.com  to get on their mailing list for post card events.
