rld of Women is a collective of individuals interested in creating a safe place to support and empower mothers, sisters and daughters. We will celebrate and shar
e global indigenous wisdom, renew the bonds of sisterhood and work for our common future.

We will collaborate to promote social, political, economical and educational opportunities and enhance physical, emotional and spiritual wellness through support group, peer-mentoring, book club, workshops, teach-ins and more.
