Lynda Waddington, contributor to Iowa Independent and creator of the Essential Estrogen blog, will be the featured speaker at two seminars on "developing campaign web pages and blogs for Democratic women candidates, and those who work their campaigns."
If you know any women who have considered running for office, or anyone who wants to work on a woman candidate's campaign, please spread the word. Waddington promises to "show participants the good, the bad, and the (oh so very) ugly that can come with being a politically active woman in the age of the internet and high technology."
The Des Moines seminar will take place on Saturday, November 14, from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at the AFSCME office, 4320 NW 2nd.
The Cedar Falls seminar will take place on Saturday, November 21, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Cedar Falls Public Library.
For more information, contact Jo Ann Zimmerman at 515-225-1136 or atzzzzz AT aol.com, or Marcia Nichols at 515-246-1517 (for the Des Moines event).
The seminars are free, no advance registration required. Sponsored by DAWN (Democratic Activist Womens Network) and AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees). DAWN was founded in 1992 to recruit and mentor Democratic women to run for public office.
