Ntosake: February 18 for Power!
February 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
In 1993, a group of women organizers and leaders, lead by Gamaliel organizer and co-founder Mary Gonzales, organized the Women’s Weekend. 75 women gathered to build on their National Leadership Training by expanding certain concepts most women find challenging: power, having a self-interest, money, public and private and more. By the end of the weekend, the women had committed to continuing their pursuit of building public lives and named themselves: Ntosake, she who walks with lions.
Now in 2020, Gamliel affiliate women have committed to building local Prides: local cells of women working to build their own power to achieve goals for themselves and their communities. These local cells are called Prides invoking the image of a gathering of lionesses. Here in St. Louis, we have had a Pride that is working now to renew itself.
If you have a passion for achieving a significant goal…or you’re looking for that goal, the St. Louis Pride is for you. Some of our current Pride is hoping to pass legislature in the 2021 session, others are raising money for MCU and their congregations. Still others are committed to growing teams and congregations. And some are still trying to figure out what to do in a society full of inequity. Using the language of Cecilia Munoz…we are discovering and keeping our North Star before us, with a Pride to backup each of us.
Join us on Thursday, February 18, 6:30pm – 8pm. We’ll work to identify each other’s North Star and how we can reach it. We will make commitments to future leadership development, fund raising and bringing more women to the table. Register HERE to be part of the most exciting women’s power table in St. Louis: Ntosake-St. Louis Pride.
