Throughout Women's History Month this March, we encourage all of our Women for Hillary volunteers to host house parties in your communities to showcase the impact that Hillary Clinton has had on women and girls throughout her career. We can provide you with talking points, as well as work with you to provide a surrogate for a conference call during your party.LAST DAY Before Michigan Primary - Help Us Make Calls
