May 2018, Edition 16 
Letter From The Chairs

The Women’s Caucus is three things.  
First, we are students of politics, every month our themes drive us to educate ourselves more about the world around us. Second, we are action-focused and action-driven; we take what we have learned to create concrete steps to affect change in U.S. politics. And finally, we are a community for American women living abroad.

Our April meeting was a powerhouse cocktail of all of the above.
