Please join us for our July Club meeting. We will have important updates from the Bylaws committee & the Nominations committee, in addition to regular club business and a speaker.
Tuesday, July 5th, 5:30pm
1106 Lavaca St.
Austin, TX 78701
We are fortunate to have Jan Soifer as our speaker for Tuesday’s meeting. She is our next 345th District Court Judge and Hillary Clinton Delegate to the Democratic National Convention. Jan’s involvement in the Whole Women’s Health case will allow us to gain expert insight about the recent Supreme Court ruling in that vital abortion rights case, and where we are currently in the struggle. Members and non-members alike are encouraged to attend and bring a friend to learn from Jan’s valuable insight. And if that weren’t enough she has also agreed to share her views as a national delegate on the convention season.
