The Rural Women’s Assembly is a unique gathering of rural women and their allies across NYS. It is created and directly led by women from across an array of cultural, racial, geographic, and age groups – all committed to hope, justice and empowerment. At the Assembly, women and girls from across the State gather with their allies to listen to one another’s stories, share strategies, nurture one another, and build a strong network for change. The Rural Women’s Assembly is where we learn how we can make a difference throughout our lives, our families’ lives, the life of our communities, and within the State.

We are committed to this Mission. We provide transportation and interpretation. We will serve breakfast and lunch, and can meet dietary restrictions. In order to make this day-long program affordable, we are working with sponsors and only request $25 from each attendee. (We are very sorry, but at the Hudson Valley location we will not be able to accommodate children.)

The Mid-Hudson/ Catskill Rural Women's Assembly will take place on December 15th, at the Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill in Hyde Park.
