Chachamim (The Wise Guys) invite you to join us for lunch and to hear State Representative Dafna Michaelson Jenet talk about the long-standing culture of harassment in the State Legislature.

Since October 2017 about two dozen male state lawmakers have resigned, said they will resign, or been forced from their leadership roles after being accused of harassment or assault. Representative Michaelson will recount her role in exposing this toxic culture in the
State Legislature with relation to the #MeToo movement and its implications. 

B’nai Havurah member, Judge Pat Madsen, will introduce Ms. Michaelson and facilitate the discussion following her remarks. Pat will broaden the conversation to include other aspects of the #MeToo movement.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided. In addition, participants may bring their own lunch or purchase a boxed lunch with a choice of sandwich or salad for $10.50.
