SPARC welcomes Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson
While we have a bit o' wind at our backs with success at the midterms last year, SPARC is forging ahead into 2019 with a shut down government, intensifying investigations and critical legislation on deck. Our resolution: stay engaged on things that matter. In that light, there is no better person to ignite the new year than Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson.
THURSDAY February 7 at 6:00PM
Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson
Beyond #MeToo - Gender Politics in the Trump Era
Harry’s Plaza Ranchero Room - Santa Barbara
Suggested SPARC Donation: $15
RSVP to sbSPARC@gmail.com
*Space is limited. 21 and over.
**No-host bar. Arrive early to place your drink order.
As you know, #MeToo is much bigger and more complex than a hashtag. Prior to the event we will circulate some recommended reading. If you would like to be on our list for this, please subscribe at bit.ly/sbSPARC. In the meantime, please check out related laws created and/or endorsed by Senator Jackson.
Senator Jackson also authored Senate Bill 826 - signed by Governor Jerry Brown in October 2018 - that requires gender diversity on corporate boards. Senate Bill 826 requires every publicly-held corporation in California to have a minimum of one woman on its board of directors by the end of 2019, and more by the end of July 2021. California will be the first state in the nation with such a requirement.
Take a minute or two to peruse Senator Jackson's bio. We are so lucky to have her speak on this topic.
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on February 7. Feel free to reach out with any questions in the meantime.
