Inaugural Equality Salon
October 18, 2016
Equal Rights Salon with Nancy E. Weiss, Senior Advisor to the Chief Technology Officer at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy
Have you ever visited the museum and thought “I wish these walls could talk?” Now is your chance to be part of the conversation at our new Equality Salon series. Network with fellow NWP members at our monthly salons, reminiscent of the discussions presided over by Alice Paul during her many decades of work in the house.
These monthly thought-provoking and inspirational evenings will provide you with an opportunity to discuss contemporary issues of importance to women, surrounded by the unparalleled collection of the National Woman’s Party. Salons will take place on the third Tuesday of each month, with discussions beginning at 6:00pm followed by networking and hospitality at 7:15pm. Our first salon is free and open to all. Now is your chance to join and continue historic conversations on the progress toward equality, network with others, and connect with the National Woman’s Party community.
Join us for our inaugural Equal Rights Salon the evening of Tuesday, October 18th at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument featuring a conversation with Nancy Weiss, Senior Advisor to the Chief Technology Officer at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
