In this conversation, get a sneak-peek of the forthcoming Inlandia book compiling oral interview excerpts of cross-generational women-identifying community leaders documenting their wisdom, inspiration, and tips for adopting their strategies.
Riverside Women Creating Change was founded in Fall 2019 by a coalition of women working together to share methodologies, perspectives, and philosophies of grassroots community organizing in the City of Riverside.
