Earlier this summer, Holding Our Own invited small groups of women in the region to help the foundation develop a strategic direction for the next few years; a direction informed by those on the ground working toward feminist social change for women and girls. As a follow up to the focus groups, Holding Our Own delivered a report back on the results at the first Growing Our Own Networking Event on September 22nd 2011. Together we worked on identifying what resources exist to support our work, what resources are available to bolster that work, and some collective strategies for moving forward a feminist social change agenda in our region.

After two exciting follow up events in December 2011 and March 2012 where we were joined by even more powerful women working for change in the community, we cordially invite you, whether or not you attended any of the previous events, to join us for another round of dialogue on Thursday, May 31st at the Women’s Building.
