Wendy Davis: Inclusivity, Impact, and the Equality Economy

Sarah Cooper 926 views


Join us for an evening with Texas state senator and equal rights advocate Wendy Davis. Women and minorities have been fighting for generations to equalize their opportunities and rights in all arenas of life, from healthcare and workplace equality to fair treatment in the justice system and ending sexual violence. Wendy Davis, a legislative powerhouse known for her work on policy matters ranging from education reform to reproductive rights, offers a unique perspective on how America's economic potential relies on smart leadership that ensures equality continues to advance on both the local and national level. Every rung women and minorities advance on the ladder to equality and every new crack in the glass ceiling pay dividends to what Davis calls "the equality economy"-a strengthening of the economy that recognizes the value and importance of advancing civic rights for all people.

Possibly best known for standing up for women's rights in a 12-hour filibuster before the Texas State Senate to stop a legislative effort that would have dramatically reduced women's access to healthcare services in her state, Sen. Davis represents moral courage and steadfast leadership for our country's most vulnerable populations.

Widely recognized as a leader in the arena of women's healthcare, Sen. Davis prides herself on the ability to see an issue from multiple perspectives, while finding a way to inspire consensus and compromise.

We at Hello Holiday are so excited to have this opportunity to bring Senator Wendy Davis to speak in Omaha. We're definitely a blue dot in a red state, and we live among a very engaged base of young progressive professionals who are actively invested in the diversity and growth of our city. It's a very exciting time to live here. Facilitating discussions and events like this one with Senator Davis is an important part of raising consciousness and providing resources for progressive leadership in our community.

In a state where reproductive rights and gender equality laws require vigilant pursuit, this is an important opportunity to engage our local young professionals, activists, and people in the business community to continue the conversation about equality issues in Nebraska and how these policies affect our local economy.
