The evening will supports women near and far, calling in the presence of our daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers. We are inviting poetry, artwork and other forms of creative expression from ITP Alumni & Students, and Community members — you will have up to three (3) minutes for Individual Sharing in order to allow time for everyone’s participation. 

On this auspicious occasion we will be joined by:
