“How Are The Women & Girls? virtual forum is a special event for women and girls in Sacramento County and the organizations that serve them.  Hosted by the Blue Ribbon Commission on the Establishment of a Women’s Commission (BRC), the forum will include a sharing of what that the BRC has learned since its inception in 2019, a check-in with the community about how our women and girls are doing in Sacramento County especially during such uncertain times, and a dynamic community discussion about the impact of COVID-19
on women and girls.  We invite you to come and share your experience and your priorities for moving forward. 

About The
Blue Ribbon Commission

The Blue Ribbon Commission on the Establishment of a Sacramento County Women’s Commission (BRC) is an interim commission with a mandate to advise the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors and public about the viability of establishing a permanent women’s commission in Sacramento County.

 

Established by unanimous vote of the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors on July 27, 2019, the BRC is tasked with advising the Board of Supervisors and public about the structure, role, value and responsibilities of a Sacramento County Women’s Commission. The BRC meets monthly and has five Ad Hoc Advisory Committees that meet regularly and are open to public participation. We invite you to join our work and support the establishment of a commission for women and girls in Sacramento County!

 

About Women's Commissions

Women’s commissions exist to promote equality and economic and social well being for women and girls. The vision of women’s commissions internationally, nationally and across California is that all women and girls will experience fairness and equity in health care, housing, safety, high-quality education, wages and employment.
