Womxn's Heritage Month

Womxn's Heritage Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as "Women's History Week." Five years later, the month of March 1987 was designated as "Women's History Month." This month celebrates the contributions Womxn have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements Womxn have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields. We also use this month to highlight and center the Womxn and Femme experiences today and always.

Join SLCC in the many celebrations, listed below, we have organized for our community.
