“The reason I am excited to be part of Women’s Plaza is because, being a working mom, I connect deeply with the mission and the purpose of WP. When my kids were younger I hoped for a Women’s Plaza to help me get back into the workforce and connect with a community of women who experienced the same struggles and challenges.”
