29 Sep Eleanor Roosevelt Luncheon
You Are Invited to the 28th Annual Eleanor Roosevelt Luncheon
Please join us on Monday, October 25, 2021, at noon for the Utah Democratic Party’s Annual Eleanor Roosevelt Luncheon honoring the legacy of Eleanor Roosevelt.
The luncheon is a cherished opportunity to come together and recognize the immense strength and contribution of women to our party and our state. And it is also an opportunity to support the party in our efforts to elect more women to office and advance legislation that strengthens our communities.
While we wish we could gather in person, this will be a virtual event, and a Zoom link will be sent out prior to the luncheon.
2021 Eleanor Roosevelt Awardee
Congratulations to Gwen Springmeyer, this year’s winner of the Eleanor Roosevelt Award.
Born and raised in Utah, Gwen exemplifies the public service spirit embodied by the legendary Eleanor Roosevelt. Since her first neighborhood caucus in 1976, Gwen has been instrumental in helping elect Democratic candidates to public office. From city and state-wide races to numerous volunteer boards, Gwen lends her time and skills to support candidates and causes she cares about, working quietly behind the scene to bring about change.
Gwen has an authentic personal connection with everyone she meets, and we’re deeply indebted to her long-standing efforts to make Utah a better place for future generations. We are excited to celebrate her decades of contributions on our virtual stage on October 25.
