Women’s History Month
2020 Women’s History Month Luncheon
“A Legacy of Valiant Women in Prince George’s County”
On March 26th, Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks will host the 35th Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon to celebrate the dynamic accomplishments of women who serve in and partner with government to influence and impact our communities. The event will begin at 11:00 A.M. at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The County’s theme, Beyond The Ballot Honoring Our Past…Celebrating Our Future, highlights individuals and organizations whose contributions demonstrate dedication, commitment and pride in Prince George’s County. This is based on the national theme, Valiant Women of the Vote, which celebrates women who have fought for women’s suffrage in the United States. In recognition of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, we will honor women from the original suffrage movement, as well as those who have continued the struggle to ensure voting rights and equality for all after the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
The Annual Women’s History Month Luncheon attracts women and men from government, the arts, business, education, religion, nonprofits and other sectors who are doing great work in our County and region. It is the County’s premiere networking event for those who want to connect with women in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
The highlight of the event entails award presentations by Prince George’s County Executive Alsobrooks. This year, awards will be presented to the recipient of the prestigious Gladys Noon Spellman Public Service Award, named in honor of the late Congresswoman who climbed the ranks of service from the County classroom to Capitol Hill. In addition, the Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarship Award will recognize a graduating senior with both academic and civic excellence.
