When you’ve spent a lifetime fighting to make New Jersey a better place for all its residents, what can you do to secure that legacy and encourage others to follow in your footsteps? Well, if you’re Senate Majority Leader (and progressive godmother) Loretta Weinberg, you can raise a little awareness and a lot of money to make it possible.
And, that’s exactly what she did at an event last night in Bergen County, raising over $100k for the Loretta Weinberg Legacy Fund at the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP). CAWP is a unit of the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers, whose self-described mission is “to promote greater knowledge and understanding about women’s participation in politics and government and to enhance women’s influence and leadership in public life.”
And let’s face it, few know more about women’s participation in politics and government or have had greater influence and leadership than Senator Weinberg, whose daughter Francine last night described her (as only a child can, with love) as “a modern day caped crusading change maker – part nag, part superhero.”
