Thank You


A special thank you to everyone who joined Hoosier Women Forward on April 12. It was a spectacular evening. We appreciate your support and commitment to empowering women and helping us increase the number of Hoosier Democratic women of influence in every level of government. Please stay tuned for our applications, which will be posted on our website in late May.

Event coverage: “Democratic women’s movement gains momentum” and “New Democratic leadership initiative generating a lot of interest “.
