DWCNV Events 2020

Monday, March 2nd, 2020
March 15th.  DWCNV General Meeting.  Topic: The Economy: Tax Cuts, Deficit, Labor Market, Trade, etc.  

It is a truth universally acknowledged …  That what goes up, must come down

The US economy has entered the 11th year of economic growth, a record expansion. How long can that continue? Economists like to say that expansions don’t die of old age, so what will cause the next downturn?

Economics editor Heather Scott will explain where the experts are looking for signs of trouble and the data they watch. Denny Gulino, veteran economics journalist and editor, will focus on the longer term outlook for the US economy, including the implications of high debt levels, low productivity, and a paralyzed Congress.

We will also hear about unemployment being near a 50-year low, and black unemployment being the lowest on record, but wages have not kept pace. Is the job market really that good?

Economic data is neutral but can be cherry-picked to distort the picture. You will hear about how you should read the data to get a real picture.

A member of the Senate of Virginia will discuss the State’s economy.

And you will be able to ask your questions of the experts!

Please attend our Sunday, March 15th DWCNV meeting from 3-5 p.m. at the Clifton Town Hall, 12641 Chapel Road, Clifton, VA 20124.   This meeting is open to the general public.

April 19th.  DWCNV Annual Meeting on the Environment  Details coming.

Help Out, Get Some Exercise and Meet Some New Folks!

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

The Democratic Women of Clifton & Northern Virginia is proud of our commitment to the community. For many years now, we have coordinated the Adopt-a-Highway program by adopting Clifton Road from the triangle to Braddock Road. Members fill large orange bags with roadside trash. Our next fall clean up has been scheduled for Sunday, September 30th, from 1 to 4 p.m. Join us and get some exercise, meet new people and do something good for the environment!

We invite anyone from the community to participate – you do not have to be a member of the DWCNV nor a Democrat to help out! We will meet up in the driveway of the former Clifton Elementary School, where orange bags and vests will be distributed and participants will receive a safety briefing. This is great service opportunity for older students who need community service hours or just want to help out. For safety reasons we do not recommend bringing children under 12. Bring work gloves if you have them, and wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt with sturdy shoes. Contact us at cliftonwomendems@aol.com with questions and to let us know you will be there. Looking forward to seeing you!
