  • Women’s History Month

    Women have long held an important role as leaders in the Democratic Party, influencing and shaping policy. We honor the contributions women have made in the past, and we look to a new generation of women to lead us forward.

We made history in 1984 when we selected Geraldine Ferraro as the first female vice presidential nominee. We nominated the first female secretary of state, Madeline Albright, and started a trend. Three of the last six secretaries have been women. We elected the...

  • Help For Caregivers Pressed Into Care

    Off-Time Events Can Derail A Young Life
    Many of us realize that at some point in the future, we will become a caregiver for an elderly parent or spouse. What we don't expect is caregiving to start when we are in our 40s, 30s or even our 20s! These are the years that we expect to take care of ourselves (our education, career and family), but many of us are finding that our lives are suddenly put on hold as we become caregivers. This abrupt change in our lives can create feelings of anger and sadness. Help is out there, and we have put some of these ideas together.
    The first suggestion given to many of these young caregivers by industry professionals is to join a support group. We know...
