About Us

Our History


Sonoma County is the birthplace of the National Women's History Alliance (NWHA), originally founded as the National Women's History Project in 1980. We are proud to be working with the NWHA as our fiscal sponsor and also as a chapter of the 

CA 2020 Women's Suffrage Project to create cooperative programming and events throughout Sonoma County celebrating this important centennial. 


Look for us at upcoming parades, events and bringing you new programs that are reflective of today which will launch us into making history for another 100 years. 

Our Kick-Off Event
