YWCA Inspires King County Luncheon 2018 with special guest Alfre Woodard

YWCA King County celebrates its 30th anniversary of luncheons and their mission in eliminating racism and empowering women through the perspectives of inspiring women overcoming adversity.

YWCA Inspires King County Luncheon welcomes award-winning actor and activist Alfre Woodard on Tuesday, May 15th from 12:00-1:30PM at the Washington State Convention Center. Mary Nam of KOMO 4 News will emcee the event.

In 2009, she was appointed by Barack Obama to the President’s Committee on the Arts and The Humanities, where she advocated for the arts in education. Currently, Woodard plays villain Mariah Dillard in the Marvel television series, Luke Cage, and will star in Netflix’s Juanita coming in 2018. She is a seasoned activist and a founder of Artists for a New South Africa, an organization dedicated to ending apartheid and advancing democracy and equality.
