Join us during Women’s History Month for three weeks of making and activism! Kicking off on March 8th, International Women’s Day, this interactive virtual event includes a variety of self-paced activities that center around making and activism.

Complete activities on your own time, and join us for our keynote with Sarah Marsom, Heritage Resource Consultant, who will present a LIVE banner-making workshop focusing on self-care and activism.
