What we're about

This is a supportive and energetic space for like-minded women and gender-non-conforming folks of all ages who kick ass and are done with the sexual status quo.

We know that we are stronger together, bolstering each other through trusting friendships while discussing issues we face at work and in life.

This group focuses on being intersectional. We understand that women face unique obstacles because of their race, identity, or sexual orientation, and we appreciate our diversity and value what we can learn from listening to the views of different people. We are always open to hearing how we can do better.

It's a safe space to mobilize our vision into action.

It's a BRAVE space to ask questions and learn and develop.

It's a nourishing space to re-fill our wells and laugh together.
