Wellington is proud to celebrate Women’s History Month in special recognition of the many contributions women have made to our country’s history and heritage.

The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. Visit the Library of Congress' Women's History Month website to learn more, and to find a list of virtual events and programs.

Women of Color in America a Conversation with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal

She the People is hosting an intimate conversation with Rep. Jayapal (D-Wash.) about what’s next for women of color.  In 2020, women of color emerged as a central constituency with the power, prowess, and the potential to lead the nation in building a multiracial democracy for generations to come. Yet we face pushback and challenges on the road to economic and racial justice—and our full representation.

Congresswoman Jayapal and Aimee Allison will talk COVID relief, minimum wage, student loans, voter protection, and other key issues that impact women of color, as well as what is needed to build power and secure their future.
