WIN President Remarks 23rd Women’s History Month

This year marks Women’s Informal Network’s 23rd Women’s History Month Celebration honoring “The Most Influential African American Women in Metropolitan Detroit.”

In 2020, our annual celebration was cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. This past year has been very challenging in many ways, however, we persevered. 

It is essential that we continue to recognize the achievements of African American women.  We are excited and thankful to be able to hold this Virtual Celebration to honor these dynamic women.  They have demonstrated high standards in their chosen professions, exemplary leadership qualities, and community involvement.

Our theme, which was extended from last year, “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced,” reminds all of us of our responsibility to help educate our communities about the importance and power of voting.    We must refuse to be silenced in order to ensure equality.     

We are honored to have Rhonda Craig as our Keynote Speaker and our own Edna Bell as our Mistress of Ceremonies.  As President of the League of Women Voters of Detroit (LWV), Rhonda advocates for voter rights, and works to empower citizens to become informed voters. 

Thank you for your continued support of our organization’s programs and initiatives for nearly 29 years.  We salute our sponsors, keynote speaker, mistress of ceremonies, honorees, and all who have joined us for this Virtual Celebration.  Special thanks to our WIN Sisters for your continued dedication to upholding our mission, “to promote the growth and development of African American women in metropolitan Detroit.”
