701 Whaley Street I Believe Anita Hill Party. The Anita Hill Wake-Up Call Anniversary Celebration is an annual reminder of the outrage, of the effect of the different perspectives of men and women, of the need for more women in politics and other policy-making positions, and of the need to get involved, to stay involved, and to stay in contact with other strong women of all ages and backgrounds.

Join women and men who share these views for an evening of the best networking possible. The event is free to you thanks to the generosity of our hosts.
