Run to the Polls Virtual 5K!

The Dallas Women Lawyers Association’s 2020 Leadership Class is excited to announce its class project: “Run to the Polls.” Run to the Polls is a virtual 5k run honoring the 100th anniversary of women’s constitutional right to vote. This event is intended to increase awareness around the importance of voting and participating in our democracy. To this end, the 2020 Leadership Class will be raising funds for the League of Women Voters, an organization dedicated to empowering voters. By hosting Run to the Polls, the 2020 Leadership Class hopes to continue the work of the women before them by increasing voter awareness in local, state, and national elections.
