This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BetterForBalance — and we’ve got a program that will make our #IWD2019 celebration better than ever before! Though women have made progress in the last year, from the new wave of women in Congress to the #MeToo movement to global improvements in women’s health and welfare, the statistics show we have a long way to go to reach a safe and balanced world. Toward this end, NSWHN’s mission remains riveted on the goal of educating our community to promote gender equity and women’s reproductive rights, and our IWD celebration is a highlight of our yearly work.
This time, we’re honored to welcome a very special guest. Renowned feminist activist and professor Loretta Ross will conduct a conversation on navigating white supremacy in the Age of Trump, drawing on half a century of activism for social change. Dynamic and insightful, Dr. Ross’s conversations inspire the transformation of apathy and anger into activism for social justice. NSWHN is excited to present a platform to share her essential insights here in rural Far Northern California.
So, on June 9, 5–8 p.m. at the Atrium in downtown Redding, come celebrate with us! Enjoy music, dance and spoken word performances by local artists, discover and support local women-focused businesses and entrepreneurs, and share solidarity and sisterhood with women in our community and beyond.
Tickets available here: $20 general, $200 VIP table of 6, and students are free with ID!
