About Me

We are in rural western New York State, working to empower rural women to recognize their value. It is imperative we get women of color active in communities, and voting. We believe in order to get more women running for office, we need to start with baby steps and get women to join local agency boards of directors, or local civic committees. We think rural women have some unique challenges such as isolation and limited access to progressive ideas so we are committed to reaching out and igniting some new energy.
