The planning of the celebration is going well. We are finalizing the agenda and have confirmed the speakers. As a reminder, Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton will be our keynote speaker. This year, we will have a preconference activity in the courtyard for those of you who would like a low impact physical activity. Qigong will be offered from 9:40am to 10:00am. Qigong is a Chinese system of physical exercises and breathing control related to tai chi. By popular demand, we will bring back the table visits to exchange information and gain knowledge on the services/resources available from the various local organizations that will be in attendance.
Please help us to spread the word. We look forward to celebrating International Women’s Day with you.
