Women History Month
Vision: An annual event that gathers women of all persuasions, age and outlook to shine light in dark places, raise bars that are lopsided or low, move barriers that impede and fill in chasms that divide; using our spoken words, our unity in diversity, our gifts, talents, capabilities and capacities to bring about the unending beauty of a “living positive change” that empowers all women domestic and international and the people that believe in them!
Mission: To gather women into the manifest power of partnership, friendship, love and unity that our common thread of womanhood bestows on us. We will do this by gathering to speak, to act, to initiate and to lead. We will use this gathering each year and in-between to introduce ourselves to the voices, activities, and challenges of our women-neighbours and lend an ear to hear and a hand to help and a heart to heal. We will always strive to create a platform that allows each one a springboard to the activities and life she is most gifted for.
