On Friday, March 8, the Peace/Wellness Group met to celebrate International Women’s Day. Eight women came together to take some time to reflect on their lives and their own importance. They began by sharing about important women in their lives, and to talk about why these women were so valuable to them. We also looked at the life of Dolores Huerta and the great work she did with the United Farmworkers Movement. We discussed the idea that each one of us has value. We echoed the words of Dolores Huerta: “Si se puede!” which translates to “Yes, we can”! Each woman, wearing a hand-crafted crown, left with a new sense of her worth, as she went forth to celebrate International Women’s Day.
