Organizing

Gay Women's Alternative-DC was successful largely due to the contributions of commited volunteers. Take a look at the meeting minutes below, which outline the shared responsibilities of the founders. As the organization grew, the board of directors and general volunteer base needed to be expanded. Below you'll find the 12-person board of directors from 1985 and 1986, as well as an advertisement and application for more volunteers.

Women who helped organize GWA-DC:

  • Ina Alterman
  • Trish Bangert
  • Bonnie Becker
  • Susan Geiger
  • Maryl Kerley
  • Ann Meltzer
  • Lil Russo
  • Joyce Sideman
