You've heard the saying "If you're not at the table, you're on the menu...." For too long, women have been on the menu, as others have written and passed legislation with far-reaching effects on our lives. It's time to reclaim our seats at the table, and starting writing and passing the legislation that will change the future for the better.

In 1977, the duly elected participants for the one and only national convening of women delegates (held in Houston, Texas) created 26 legislative planks - 25 of which concerned issues ranging from domestic violence to equal pay to gender identity.

Do you think we've made progress on these 25 issues? Take the survey here and tell us what you believe should be our priorities going forward.

Then sign up to join us Sunday, November 5th in Houston and take your seat at the table with women from around the country who will help decide the legislation women across our nation will begin to prioritize and push for inclusion in states and in the US Congress.

Come to the table. Work on issues with us. VOTE. This is how we change the world, together.

P.S. Dinner will be catered by Pat Greer who is the chef for the Houston Dynamos.  Pat is making healthy Dynamo Dishes! Menu:  Curried lentil soup / Lemon kale and quinoa salad / Pest chicken salad / Pesto Garbanzo Salad / Crackers, chips, or bread / Carrot cake
