On Sunday afternoon, August 21, YWCA Brooklyn hosted a tea party for Women and girls to celebrate 96 years of women voters, honor change-makers in the community through an awards ceremony and exchange ideas through moderated group discussions. The League of Women Voters was on site to answer questions and assist the over 40 guests with registering to vote in upcoming elections.

YWCA Brooklyn interns in the College Prep Program worked together to plan the group discussions moderated by event co-sponsers Diamond Craig of Purposefully Pretty, Asha Boston of The Dinner Table Documentary and Raven Robinson of PR2Politics, that covered important topics like immigration, gender violence, education and the importance of registering to vote.
