VOICES FOR JUSTICE was the program for our Spring Gathering. It was a great program and so appropriate for issues facing women today. The program is now divided into 3 sections, each suitable for a Circle meeting or discussion with any group of women that want to learn more about using their voices for justice. All of the materials are available on the Resources page of this website.
