Proceeds from this event will be dedicated to supporting women candidates in the upcoming election cycle. Power of the Purse will feature a luncheon, keynote speaker and silent auction.

We are delighted that Regina Montoya has agreed to be our keynote speaker.

In 1993, Ms. Montoya served in the White House as an Assistant to the President and Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. She is currently working on a book about the importance of incorporating Latinos into the economic, political and social fabric of America, and she is a frequent public speaker on a wide range of issues including healthcare, poverty, diversity and children.

Ms. Montoya earned her B.A. from Wellesley College, where she is a Trustee Emerita, and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
