San Luis Obispo
Women’s March San Luis Obispo donated $5,000 to Anna’s Home — a supportive housing program run by Restorative Partners — on International Women’s Day. The donation was given as part of the Nipomo Progressive Women’s Forum.
Women’s March San Luis Obispo leader Dawn Addis said: “We are elated to be invited back to the Nipomo Progressive Women’s Forum to present the donation that arose from a successful fundraising campaign for Hear Our Vote: Voices of Resistance Rally. ... It’s an honor to be able to provide a donation to Anna’s Home, which serves women in our county who are pressing for progress in their own lives as they create a more positive and just future for their own selves and children.”
