Over 120 state legislators and community activists came to DC last week for the 2011 WiLL/WAND conference, “Women at the Table of Power.” Members from 34 states heard from distinguished speakers, participated in top-notch training, and took their message to Capitol Hill! We honored former WiLL member, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, with our Torchbearer Award. Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscher told the crowd how important women’s voices are in making the world a safer place for all of us. Congresswoman Donna Edwards welcomed participants to our nation’s capitol. The Truman National Security Project and ReThink Media helped participants hone their communications skills.
