Open to the public.
You are cordially invited to attend a breakfast gathering of caring and concerned women activists like yourself on Tuesday morning August 1, at Threshold on Madison's east side (2717 Atwood) from 8:00 until 9:45 am. This is the fourth such quarterly gathering. Our theme: Gather the Women: growing the local to global justice movement. Our intent: to connect and converse. Clearly the conversation must continue!
On August 1, Betty Banks and Jeanne Erickson will speak on the topic "Place and Relationships Matter". Longtime Madison activists, Betty and Jeanne cofounded Project Babies and on June 7 contributed to the opening of Today Not Tomorrow Family Resource Center located in The East Madison Community Center. The Center's current focus is programming for young families and is a collaboration between Project Babies, African American Breastfeeding Alliance of Dane County, Inc., Neighborhood Connectors, Harambee Village Dulas, and Integrated Wellness, LLC. This great group of women are dedicated to strengthening families and improving health disparities across the lifespan. The Center's unique approach supports social cohesion, builds protective factors, strengthens families and fosters resilience. Come ready to listen, learn, and generate ideas for further action, collaboration, and support.
