A Note from the KFDW CD3 New Director, Cassie Woolworth


I’m grateful for KFDW and for CD3 electing me, Director.  I could not be prouder of what we accomplished last year.  Yes, some losses, but even then, we moved the needle.  I’m looking forward to carrying the torch to ignite a majority Democratic Senate and House with inclusivity and diversity. – Cassie


Kansas Federation of Democratic Women Annual Convention


The women of CD3 had their convention April 21 & 22 and we had a blast!  Saturday provided a changing of the guard – congratulations to Tanya Shyrock as she assumes the role of KFDW President.  Filling Candace Ayers’ shoes is going to be quite the job!
We learned about Campaign Financing, Diversity, Social Media and its impact, and how to become a Precinct Leader, and had an engaging discussion with our congressional panelists centering on reproductive freedom.  We visited with Gail Buckner, our National Federation President and capped off the evening with a conversation with the Co-Chair of the Pro-Choice caucus, Rep Diana DeGette.
Many thanks to our Silent Auction donors, thanks to the volunteers who stepped up to assist and many, many thanks to all our speakers and panelists – it was a wonderful and informative weekend – I look forward to what we can accomplish together this year to stem the tide of fascism. 

Special thank you to Meg Schimmels, who did a phenomenal job with the silent auction! 

The new KFDW CD3 Executive Board includes: Cassie Woolworth, District Director; Becca Peck, Vice Director; Kat Hooley-Lickteig, Secretary; and Carol Shimeall, Treasurer
