From the global pandemic to racial injustice, 2020 has challenged communities across the country. And yet, women continue to rise. They are meeting the moment by organizing, learning and collectively working together to secure a better tomorrow. A more equitable future is in our hands and it’s up to each one of us to #BeTheChange.
