Featuring special guest speaker Leslie Butsch from Planned Parenthood.

And a Cameo appearance by Sharice Davids!

Leslie Butsch works with Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes building a movement to protect access to sexual and reproductive health in Kansas and Missouri as the Kansas City Organizer.
Leslie has a Master of Social Work and many years of experience working as an ally to individuals who have been marginalized by systems. Carrying these stories with her, Leslie believes movement work should be led and built by those most impacted. At Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes, Leslie has the privilege to create a community of advocates empowered to fight for reproductive rights at the local, state, and federal levels.

Dear South Members:

Due to a scheduling conflict, our March meeting could not be held at the new Indian Creek Library location. For ONE MONTH ONLY, we will be back at our old location at Old Shawnee Pizza in Lenexa. We apologize for any confusion.

Dear Candidates:

Would you like JCDW to promote your upcoming public event? We’re happy to help! After all, getting Democrats elected is our primary mission.

Here are two things we can do for you:

1. If you list Johnson County Democratic Women South AND Johnson County Democratic Women as co-hosts on your public FB event, we will each accept your invitation. This puts your event on both of our calendars and automatically posts it to our news feeds. (For best results, makes sure your event title is descriptive. “Campaign Kickoff” might seem good enough on your own page, but listed alongside other events on the JCDW pages, it is confusing. “Becca Peck Senate 37 Campaign Kickoff” would be a much better event title.)

2. We can also include your event in our newsletter (see below). This does require notice, as our newsletter is published on the fourth Thursday of the month and covers the entire following month. To be sure your event gets in, make sure to let the communications chair (Christine Morgan) know by the night of the south monthly meeting (the 3rd Thursday). We cannot guarantee inclusion after that. Requests should be sent to jcdwsouth@gmail.com and include your event name, date, time, location, and a link to further information.

*We can only share public events.
