Women celebrate their growing role in city government

The organization that helped women organize and campaign for City Council seats and gender equity in office celebrated at City Hall Park, Tuesday, July 13 that they have far exceeded their goals.

Dubbed 21 in ‘21, the organization’s goal was to see at least 21 women elected to the 51-person council, but come January the new council will have 30 women, with 86% of those women being people of color.
