Maryland Women’s Caucus to Honor Veterans in Virtual Event

The Maryland Women’s Caucus is hosting a virtual celebration to honor women veterans on March 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. 

The celebration also looks to pay tribute to the state’s first woman veteran, Harriet Tubman. This will be the Caucus’ third Women Veterans Day but the first virtual celebration. 

The event will feature the stories of Maryland women veterans and the proposals of legislative solutions to better prioritize the issues facing the veteran community. The event also includes networking opportunities, information about VA benefits and other interactive activities. 

Participants will also be able to take an in-person tour of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Church Creek, which will be closed to the public to promote social distancing. The tour is free and will take place after the virtual event at 2 p.m.

Individuals can register for the free event online or contact the Executive Director of the Women’s Legislative Caucus of the Maryland General Assembly, Catherine Hill at womens.caucus@house.state.md.us.

Women Veterans Day is co-sponsored by the Latino Caucus, the Black Caucus and the Asian-American Caucus. 

The Women’s Caucus is a bipartisan organization of 85 members who serve in the Maryland General Assembly. Founded in 1972, their mission is “to help women and their families through legislation and to encourage women’s participation in government.”
