Edwith, who was nominated for the Community Organizing/Labor Work award, has been with Feminist Campus for nearly two years and has traveled and organized in 10 states during that time. She’s worked on issues including clinic defense, ballot initiatives, sexual assault, immigration reform, and voter suppression, always focusing on coalition building and teaching the fundamentals of grassroots organizing.
Edwith is one of 45 talented, up-and-coming young women leaders who’ve been nominated for this year’s Young Women of Achievement (YWA) Awards. The YWAs are the Women’s Information Network’s (WIN) annual celebration of women leaders making a difference in the community. YWA acknowledges young, pro-choice, Democratic women of excellence who have made strides in their fields and a real difference in the world. YWA nominees are pro-choice, Democratic women who are 35 years of age or younger and live in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Members of WIN and the WIN Advisory Council, a group of high-achieving women who support the organization, select six awardees from the nominations.
Winners will be revealed at the YWA awards ceremony at the end of February. Cross your fingers for our girl Edwith!
