Upcoming Event
Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - 7:00pm

When Barack Obama was elected as President of the United States, one of his many priorities was to ensure that his staff reflected the population of his country. That meant hiring women—women of all ages and colors—to be part of his White House. Yes She Can is a collection of essays written by those very women. They came of age in the Obama era and dedicated their lives to public service. In poignant and inspiring essays, these women recall what it was like to be part of a team changing the world. Join Politics & Prose as we welcome Nita Contreras, former Assistant Staff Secretary, and Andrea R. Flores, former Policy Assistant for Immigration and Rural Affairs, and Kalisha Dessources Figures,former Policy Advisor for White House Council on Women and Girls, for an evening discussing their experiences in the Obama administration.
