Women4Change Indiana February Summit

Hundreds of women will join and share their voices in support of the well-being of all women at the Women-4Change Indiana Summit at 6 p.m. on February 7 at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, in Indianapolis.

After a successful first meeting held in mid-November that drew hundreds of women, local organizers Rabbi Sandy Sasso and Jennifer Nelson moved the second event to a larger facility to provide room for more attendees. They expect an evening full of networking, inspiring speeches and learning how to engage in ways that will be effective.

“We are an inclusive, non-partisan grassroots organization to promote the health, safety, and respect for all Hoosiers,” says their mission statement. “Motivated by a desire to address the escalating rhetoric of hate and the increasing acts of intimidation and violence which demeans minorities, immigrants and women, we are a powerful voice for change.”

Indianapolis is just one city in a global movement in which similar groups are organizing. In Washington, D.C., on January 21, there was a Women’s March on Washington, in which the intention was to stand together in solidarity to share a message to lawmakers to protect the rights of women. In addition, “sister marches” took place globally on that same day, including at the Indiana State House in Indianapolis.

Free admission. Location: 100 W. 86th Street. For more information or to register for the summit, visit
