Women of all ages gathered to connect, support, and inspire each other to become involved in political activism. Since the Foothills Event Center’s main space provides plenty of room, the Indivisible Women organization encouraged women to bring their friends as well.
Last week, around 350 local women gathered at the Foothills Event Center for the Indivisible Women meet-up! We were honored to be their chosen meeting venue in Nevada County. You may remember that last week, we shared about how the Foothills contributes to Business Seminar and Meeting Services in Nevada County. The group Invisible Women Nevada County really used our meeting space amenities to their full potential!
Indivisible Women Nevada County used our bar area to conveniently serve beverages and snacks. They also took advantage of our separate conference room located near the main meeting space, so that attendees with young children could be looked after while their mothers participated in the meeting. Indivisible Women Nevada County was able to seat all of their guests in our elegant Chiavari chairs when it came time for the speakers’ presentations.
According to their website, IndivisibleWomen.org, the organization is “a results-oriented collective of women who are committed to engaging more fully at local, state and national levels to transform our political process. Our group is made up of amazing women volunteering to improve our current political environment. We come from every walk of life and welcome all women to join us as we move into action together–indivisible.”
Their meet-up began with music by local musician Maniko performing on the Foothills Event Center’s movable thrust stage. Afterward, co-founders of Indivisible Women Nevada County Marilyn Nyborg, Barb DeHart, and Elisa Parker provided opening comments. The keynote speaker, Doris Romero, shared what it’s like to live in fear of deportation.
Other highlights on the meeting agenda included 10-minute talks about a variety of subjects impacting us today, including immigration, youth taking political action, and racial justice. Interest groups also met, on subjects ranging from LaMalfa action and political reform to education and healthcare reform.
The event concluded with a performance from the “I Can’t Keep Quiet Choir.” You can watch their powerful performance here.
