The 2018 CA Roast is Now a Women’s Tribute

We've decided to do something a little different this year!  The 2018 California Roast will be a tribute to the past, present and future of women in politics in California and will feature female panelists and contributors who are influential in state & national politics.  This year's event will benefit the resurrection of the Women in Politics (WIP) program for Sacramento area high school youth in the summer of 2018.  Fliers for the Roast, with sponsorship level information can be found here.  Please contact our office at 916-443-2229 for sponsorship inquiries. 

We couldn't be more excited about this event and we hope that it will foster growing support for women leaders of all ages across the state. Stay posted for more information as we confirm additional panelists.  Applications for the Women in Politics youth program are now posted on the WIP program page.  Applications/Writing Prompts are due by April 13, 2018.
