We thought we were done with winter, but the DC Metro area is once again under a winter weather advisory and heavy snow is headed our way.

Due to the inclement weather the Independent Women’s Forum is postponing our panel discussion I Do…I Don’t: Does Marriage Have A Future? that was originally scheduled to take place tomorrow, Thursday, March 5th. 

We are working with each panelist to reschedule this important discussion and will let you know the new panel date as soon as we can.
