Our 2022 Celebrating Women’s Voices event will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2022, 2-4pm EST, via Zoom. All are welcome!
An award-winning political journalist focused on issues of race, gender and politics, Errin Haines is the Founding Mother and Editor of The 19th*, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom that covers the intersection of women, politics and policy which takes its name from the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, with an asterisk to note that back then, our democracy often left people of color behind. The 19th* asserts that all issues are women’s issues, “storytelling that represents you, delivered to your inbox”.
Errin has worked at the Associated Press, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times. An MSNBC Contributor, Errin has also been seen on PBS Newshour, Washington Week in Review and Meet the Press. Errin taught at both Princeton and Georgetown and landed the first interview with Vice President Kamala Harris after Joe Biden chose her as his running mate.
The event will include an opportunity to see the bookstores of Jeannine Cook, owner of Harriett’s Book Shop in Philadelphia and Ida’s Book Shop in Collingswood, both named after civil rights activists. The stores are brick-and-mortar testimonials to African American resistance and resilience.
Proceeds from the event will benefit educational programs on the importance of women’s contributions to all segments of American society.
