King County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles is hosting the King County Council’s Womxn’s History Month Panel from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. March 30.

For each woman who has stepped into power and demonstrated resilience in the face of complex challenges, that power has looked different — including care giving, running for office, advocating for their community, trying to make it through relatively unscathed and everything in between.

This year’s theme is “Resilience, Power and Healing,” and will be moderated by Kohl-Welles and livestreamed on Facebook and King County TV, https://livestream.com/accounts/15175343/events/4485487. The event is being co-hosted by the King County Equity and Social Justice Legislative Branch Team and the County’s Women’s Advisory Board. Council Chair Claudia Balducci will provide welcoming remarks.

Commissioner Toshiko Hasegawa, Port of Seattle position 4

Cherryl Jackson-Williams, family and community engagement advocate, member of King County Districting Committee
