State Auditor Suzanne Bump will be honored by Emerge Massachusetts as a “Women of the Decade” at its upcoming 10th anniversary celebration. Emerge Massachusetts is the premier training program for Democratic women. Cambridge philanthropist and political activist Barbara Lee founded Emerge Massachusetts. She has also been a major national backer of female Democratic candidates for US Senate, Congress, Governor and Attorney General. According to its website, “We inspire women to run, we hone their skills to win. Our goal is clear: to increase the number of Democratic women in public office.”
MWF member Beth Boalnd, of Foley & Lardner LLP, is hosting the event.
