WCC Town Hall: Congresswoman Karen Bass in Conversation with Student Leaders


Join us for a unique Virtual Town Hall opportunity with Congresswoman Karen Bass hosted by the Women's College Coalition on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.

Democratic Vice Presidential contender and five-term Congressmember Bass (D-CA) will be in conversation with five student leaders from different women's colleges and universities to discuss issues spanning women's leadership, gender equity, racial injustice and other matters of importance to our WCC community.

Among the many highlights of Rep. Bass’s public service career, she is the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, the first woman African American Speaker of the California Assembly, and a physician assistant and teaching clinician by trade. Her life’s work has been devoted to fighting the drug and gang epidemics, delivering improvements to our foster care system, seeking justice through police reform and securing healthcare solutions for all Americans.


The event is free and open to all students, staff and faculty members from women's colleges and universities on a first come, first serve basis. 

Online registration is now open here


Together, let’s engage in this dialogue as we continue to advance women’s education in these ever turbulent times!
