For International Women’s Day 2017, we’re asking you to #BeBoldForChange. Call on the masses or call on yourself to help forge a better working world – a more gender inclusive world.

March 8 is International Women’s Day. GreenStar will donate 1% of our sales on March 8 to the Women’s Opportunity Center.  

The Women’s Opportunity Center is leading low-income women to the pathway out of poverty by providing them individualized career counseling, training and removing barriers to become job ready and find employment. WOC assists in removing barriers to employment by providing scholarships, guidance, and referrals to other programs as needed. WOC is committed to pursuing the mission by working one-on-one with clients, providing them with access to a comprehensive program of individualized career counseling and computer and skills training to become work ready. There are many ways to help the WOC. Consider volunteering your time, donating clothes for the Mary Dunham Boutique or the Dressing Room where women can borrow clothes needed for job interviews. Monetary donations are also welcome.

In addition, GreenStar is a sponsor of the Mothers, Daughters & Sisters 4 Alternatives 2 Mass Incarceration event happening in The Space on Wednesday, March 8 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Learn more about this event by visiting the Facebook event page Mothers, Daughters & Sisters 4 Alternatives 2 Mass Incarceration.

Another event in town is the Ithaca Women’s Day March.  March in solidarity with International Women’s Day Strike, March 8th, 2017. Meet at city hall at 12 noon and march at 12:30. There will be a rally with speakers at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the commons after the march. Bring signs, bring instruments, bring enthusiasm!
