Redwood Women's Foundation is a rural laboratory for women's empowerment. Our mission is to address the unmet needs of women living in rural Humboldt County, California and surrounding areas. Our vision is to cultivate a safe, productive, sustainable space for women, rooted in positive words, consistency, and actions. In May 2015, we began hosting monthly empowerment workshops presented by some of the most talented women in our community. Working collectively with diverse groups of women creates solidarity among the group, enhances our individual and collective capacities, and allows us to work together to help eliminate the socio-economic barriers among women in our community.
