Join Washington Women’s Foundation’s Member Engagement Committee (MEC) to discuss Gather, a film about the growing movement amongst indigenous communities in America to reclaim their spiritual and cultural identities through their ancestral food systems. MEC invites all members of Washington Women’s Foundation (WaWF) to screen the film at home and then join us for this conversation.
