The Democratic Women’s Club is hosting its monthly luncheon talk on Wednesday -- May 28 -- entitled "IT TAKES A VILLAGE: Creating a culture of partnership to meet community needs."
The event takes place at 11:30 a.m. at the Santa Cruz Police Community Room, 155 Center Street in Santa Cruz.
Guest speakers are:
- Neal Coonerty, County Supervisor 3rd District.
- Carolyn Coleman, former executive director of Encompass (formerly Community Counseling Center).
- Sarah Emmert, public policy manager of the Homeless Service Center.
- Karen Delaney, cChair, Human Care Alliance and ED Volunteer Center of SC County.
Here in Santa Cruz County, the past year has seen a fundamentally new commitment to collaboration across all sectors as the means to meet pressing community needs, say club officials.
More than ever before, local governments and public agencies -- including law enforcement, courts, health and mental health departments -- have joined with non-profits and private sector support to forge new solutions to chronic community issues, they say.

The Democratic Women’s Club was originally created more than 50 years ago to give women a chance to participate in Democratic Party politics. An independent, chartered club of the California Democratic Party, the Democratic Women’s Club of Santa Cruz County promotes progressive political activism and the election of Democrats through local, statewide and federal elections.
