Montgomery County At-Large Councilmember Laurie-Anne Sayles is hosting an inaugural Women’s History Month Event on Saturday, March 11 from 3-5 p.m. at the AFI Silver Theatre in downtown Silver Spring to honor this year’s national theme for Women’s History Month, “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” She will be joined by prominent women in the media: Ovetta Wiggins, Politics Reporter with the Washington Post; Andrea Sarralde, Emmy Award Winning Journalist with Montgomery Community Media; and Jenn White, host of NPR’s 1A Podcast.
First we will hear from Laurie-Anne Sayles and our guests of honor the prominent women in news media, next enjoy a short film about some extraordinary women, then question & answers, and we will end with a commemorative reception. This years theme allows these women to tell their story. By bringing women together for this celebration everyone can learn about how these women lead in their careers and trailblazer their own path. Montgomery County is looking forward for this event!
Don’t forgot to RSVP!
Councilmember Sayles’ Women’s Day Reception is being sponsored by the Montgomery County Commission for Women and the Montgomery County Chapter of the National Organization for Women. Both organizations are highlighting women who are making an impact in our communities throughout the month.
