After processing the turn of events in the presidential election, Parlay House members gathered to confirm our connection, our hope and our power. Anne canceled a previously scheduled mixology event, and invited everyone to her home on December 12 to come together and revel in the fact we were not alone. Not second class. Not the back seat. Not women without a choice. Not something to be “grabbed”, but a force of empathy, wisdom, and determination. A force to be reckoned with. There was no specific speaker or additional “theme”. It was simply a time to remind us of our collective strength, mutual support and individual empowerment.
